Administrative/Biographical history:

Saint Saviour's opened in a temporary Church Room in 1861, under the title of the "Northport Street Mission". This was followed by a temporary iron church built after the creation of Saint Saviour's parish on 1 November 1862, and which opened in February 1863. Work began on a permanent church in 1865 and it was consecrated on 7 May 1866. The church was associated with the Catholic Revival within the Church of England, despite opposition from the Bishop of London, which resulted in an episcopal ban on the parish following a Corpus Christi procession in August 1917. Saint Saviour's became the focus for the movement for reunion with Rome known as the Confraternity of Unity, when its secretariat was established at Saint Saviour's in 1929.

Saint Saviour's was badly damaged during the Second World War and never reopened. In 1953 the parish was united with Saint Anne and Saint Andrew, Hoxton.
