The original church, situated at the junction of Wakefield Road and Witts Hill, was built in 1951 as a daughter church of the Church of the Ascension on Cobden Avenue. It was a simple, small hall–church, an attractive and unusual feature of which was a continental-style bell post in the grounds outside the church. The name was chosen to perpetuate the memory of the medieval church of All Hallows (more often called All Saints) which stood on the corner of East Street and the High Street (see clipping 1 below). The current red-brick church, built in 1965, was designed by Roger Pinckney and built by Louis Thompson Ltd of Southampton (see clipping 2 below). It was built alongside, and was an extension to, the original church.

A contributor has been in touch (March 2017) to let us know that All Hallows Church was demolished in December 2016 and plans have been put in for a new children's day care facility in a two-storey building on the site. The final service at the church was in April 2014, when nearly seventy past and present members attended, including former clergy of the Parish of Bitterne Park.
