Who We Are
Our History & Building
“The story of our parish for over a century is a story of struggle and of the eventual triumph achieved through the power of the Holy Spirit.” Seriously, for this statement alone you should come check us out!
The current building was built in 1960, but Our Saviour carries the torch of a more historical community in Gallatin. The first attempt to establish an Episcopal Church in Gallatin began in 1881 as what is known as a mission. One hundred years later, in 1981, that mission community applied for parish status under the name Our Saviour and became a self-sustaining church. In 2016, we celebrated our 35th anniversary as a parish!
True grit, amazing grace indeed.
