All Saints Anglican Church is an historic Carpenter Gothic style Anglican church building located in English Harbour, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. Built in 1888-1889 of wood, its steep pitched roof and lancet windows are typical of Gothic Revival churches. The church's historic cemetery contains the graves of many area pioneers, including the victims of the Trinity Bay Disaster of 1892 in which numerous fishermen hunting seals in the bay were caught in a sudden freezing storm.
