St. Saviour’s began in 1880 as a Mission in what was then regarded as Folkestone’s poorest district. The parish housed most of the railway workers on the Dover to Folkestone railway. The Mission was set up in a former bakers shop in Sidney Street. It housed a Mission Chapel, Sunday School and Cocoa Tavern. The current site was acquired and built upon in 1882. The church was then known as the “Iron Church” because of its construction of wood and corrugated iron. In 1885 St. Saviour’s became an Ecclesiastical Parish. The present building has undergone many changes and rebuilds in its history to become the outstanding local landmark it is today.
