Biographical history

St Salvador’s church was founded with a school in the Hilltown area of Dundee in 1856 by Bishop Alexander Penrose Forbes and the Reverend James Nicolson, later Dean of Brechin. Its mission was to the many mill workers who lived in the tenements in the area. G F Bodley was commissioned to design the halls and church, and worship started in the upper part of the building to the south designed as the school. The nave of the church followed in 1868 and the chancel in 1874. The whole building was consecrated on Holy Cross day in that year. The church continues the original ministry to the city’s poor, running one of the busiest food banks in the city after Mass on Sundays. (Source: http://s204617846.websitehome.co.uk/)
