The church was designed by William James Morley (1847–1930) and his son Eric (born 1884), who became a partner of the Bradford architectural firm W J Morley & Son in 1901.
Church services were originally held on the ground floor, with gallery space above. Renovations undertaken in 2005 by architect David Ensom split the space into two floors. Services are now held on the first floor, and the ground level has meeting rooms, a kitchen, offices and lavatories. The two spaces are connected by stairs and a lift.
Services are held on Sunday mornings and, twice a month, on Sunday evenings. During every Sunday morning service there is a Junior Church option for children and also a creche.
The church has a Bechstein grand piano, which enables the Church to be used as a concert venue, and a Bevington pipe organ, purchased in 1926.
