This church, also known as the Unitarian Church of the Saviour, formerly stood on the corner of London Road and Bellevue Road. It was built in 1859 by artist and architect Philip Brannon. Its building was due largely to the efforts of the Reverend Edmund Kell and it replaced the older Unitarian Chapel (previously the Methodist Chapel) in Canal Walk. Destroyed by bombing during World War Two, the Church of the Saviour was rebuilt in the mid 1950s on the same site. This church existed until 1986 when both it and the Edmund Kell Memorial Hall, at the rear of the church, were demolished to make way for offices. A new church in Bellevue Road was opened in 1990.
