The church is unique, being built in the form of a star (two interlocking squares). Its other striking features are: the impressive stained glass, pointed, east window by Christopher Webb of the heavenly hosts; the huge central, star-form chandelier; and the massive octagonal pulpit and font, with simple incised and coloured line drawings of the sower and John the Baptist.
