The church is located at the junction of the A217 Brighton Road and Buckland Road. Architecturally, the Wisdom of God is unique in England; possibly in North Western Europe, in that it is in the Byzantine style with some of its artefacts and marbles being imported from the ruins of Balkan churches. It has a three star rating in Simon Jenkins’ book ‘England’s Thousand Best Churches’. People come from all over the country to see its architecture and historical treasures.

The name of the church is reflected in the words from 1 Corinthians carved over the west door: "Jesus Christ the Wisdom of God."
