Holy Innocents church is a small cruciform church, the altar standing in a recess which forms the eastern arm, but the chancel and nave are of uniform width. The south transept contains an organ and pulpit. The north transept comprises a porch, newly converted kitchen and toilet. (formerly the vestry). Beyond the transept is a two bay nave.
The single manual organ is by Osmonds of Taunton.
The church was originally built in 1930 for the children of the nearby convalescent home by Sir Phillip Hickson Waterlow Bt.
The church is high quality built using two inch soft red stock bricks.The roofs are tiled in deep red machine made nib tiles with swept valleys and purpose made hip and half round ridge tiles.
Internally the church is plastered below the common rafter exposing two pine hammer beam trusses with iron straining bars. There is a circular stained glass window in the east elevation and a small square window on the south side of the chancel also contains stained glass of a more traditional design. Other windows are glazed with hammered glass squares in metal frames.
There are no burials so the churchyard is laid to grass studded with decorative trees. The robust brick built lychgate with its tiled roof is similar in design to the church. A bell hangs over the oak entrance gate. The church is bounded by a brick and flint boundary wall on the east and north sides and trees and shrubs on the other two sides.
