Cotham Church is a Gothic Revival style church in Cotham, Bristol, England. Since 1975, it has been a Church of England parish church known as the Church of St Saviour with St Mary or simply as Cotham Parish Church.
Cotham Church was originally Highbury Congregational Chapel, built in 1842 and completed in 1843. The architect was William Butterfield and this was his first commission, obtained through his family's connection with William Day Wills of the tobacco firm W. D. & H. O. Wills.
The church's apse, tower, south transept and school were added in 1863 by Edward William Godwin. The large stone low in the enclosing wall along Cotham Road is part of Bewell's Cross, which marked the boundary of the city until the nineteenth century.
In 1975, the Church of England purchased it. It is now known as the Church of St Saviour with St Mary or simply as Cotham Parish Church. The parish of "Cotham: St Saviour with St Mary" is part of a united benefice with St Paul's Church, Clifton, Bristol in the Archdeaconry of Bristol in the Diocese of Bristol. The church stands in the Liberal Catholic tradition of the Church of England.
