The church was constructed by Edward Holmes and Frederick Preedy in 1860. It was consecrated on 26 July 1860 by Henry Pepys the Bishop of Worcester. The spire was completed in 1866.

The north aisle, organ chamber and vestries were added in 1883 by J. A. Chatwin. The west end was enlarged in 1899 by J. P. Sharp.
