Name of creator(s): Parish of St Saviour, Eltham | Church of England
Saint Saviour began as a temporary Mission Church, dedicated in 1929 in Mayerne Road, Eltham Green. The Mission was attached to the parish of Saint John the Baptist, Eltham and was established to accommodate the major increase in population which followed Woolwich Borough Council's building of the Page Estate.
In 1931 ecclesiastical district boundaries were altered and the parish of Saint Saviour was created, the church to be situated in the heart of the newly built Middle Park Estate. The foundation stone of the church was laid in November 1932, and the building was consecrated in July 1933. The Mission church became the Parish Hall, was later re-dedicated as Saint George's Mission Church in 1957 and was demolished and replaced by a Parish Hall adjacent to Saint Saviour's Church in 1961.
In 2005 the parish was administered under the following ecclesiastical areas within the Diocese of Southwark: Deanery: Eltham and Mottingham Archdeaconry: Lewisham Episcopal Area: Woolwich.
