Norwich St Saviour is an Ancient parish in the city.
The name is an abbreviation for "the Transfiguration of the Holy Saviour" its dedication.
The tower top storey was removed in 1853, and new set of battlements built. The belfry windows were reset lower down on the north and south sides, while on the west face the sound-hole was left in place instead. The west doorway was remodelled – either then or possibly in 1728, when the south porch was rebuilt. Its doorway is the original fifteenth-century one reset - and much mutilated. The church is now redundant and used as a youth centre. It is cared for by the Norwich Historic Churches Trust. Fittings and features were removed to other city churches.
