All Saints, Pavement is part of York City Centre Churches.

The parish lies within the walls of the City of York, to the east of the River Ouse. Today, it unites the original parish of All Saints, Pavement with the neighbouring parishes listed below.

In 2014, John Jessop was installed as Parish Constable, and greets the Civic Party on all occasions when the Lord Mayor attends All Saints, Pavement.

Some of the original parish churches are still in use, but for purposes other than worship.
