St Saviour's Church is a redundant 19th-century Anglican church in the town of Tetbury, Gloucestershire, England. It was designed by the architect Samuel Daukes. Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin and John Hardman undertook the design and execution of the chancel roof. St Saviour's is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II* listed building, and is under the care of the Churches Conservation Trust.
The church was built in 1848 as a chapel of ease in the parish of St Mary the Virgin's Church, Tetbury. At that time the richer people paid a fee for the use of a pew in St Mary's (a pew rent). St Saviour's was built for the poorer people who could not afford this charge, and it came to be described as "a little church for the poor".
ExteriorSt Saviour's is a Gothic Revival church in the Decorated Gothic style, built in local stone with Cotswold stone roofs. The plan has a nave with side aisles and a chancel from which projects a north vestry. The main entrance is through a south porch into the nave. The church has steeply gabled ends, which project beyond the roofline, terminating in small crosses and, at the western end, a bellcote. There is no clerestory, the roof of the nave extending into catslides of a less steep pitch over the aisles. The corners of the building have splayed stepped buttresses, with two more buttresses occurring on the west front, at the ends of the aisles.
