The interesting Grade II* listed church was built in the 1850s in the Italianate style, replacing an earlier building of which there are remains in the churchyard. The building is in a good state of repair in general, having had extensive repair work to the roof, guttering and bells in 2014 as well as repair work to the west rose window. In 2015 a complete re-wire of the building was carried out and new lights installed. The next project is to install a new heating system, although the PCC would also like to have a toilet and refreshment area incorporated into the nave. A working party made up of Church and Community representatives is looking into developing the Church space to make it more flexible for community use.

The church is open every Thursday afternoon for quiet prayer and contemplation.
