Our History

St Saviour’s has a dynamic history. By the turn of the century what had been a large and vibrant church (in 1970s and 80s) had shrunk to a handful of folk meeting weekly at the church on Colombo Street. In 2004 a group of 50 people moved from St John’s in Latimer Square to help revitalize St Saviour’s.

By God’s grace since then there has continued to be steady numerical growth and accompanying growth in ministry, evangelism and discipleship.
In 2012 there was an opportunity for St Saviour’s to merge with a smaller church to the west – St Nicholas on Barrington Street. St Nicholas has its own rich history and love for Christ and the neighborhood that they have been placed in. Together the two churches are able to offer a wide range of ministries in a number of locations across the south of the city.
