The church was built in 1886, and designed by the Manchester architect William Waddington. Internal alterations were carried out in 1959.
In 2012 worship ceased, and the building was sold. In 2016 the lower floor was converted into a childcare centre.
Constructed in buff ashlar sandstone, the church has a Welsh slate roof with a tiled ridge. Its architectural style is that of the 13th century. It consists of a five-bay nave with a southwest steeple, and is aligned almost north-south. The entrance front, on the south, has four steps leading to twin-lancet doorways. Over these is a four-light window containing Geometric tracery, flanked by lancet windows. The hexagonal tower is in four stages with louvred bell openings in the top stage. It is surmounted by a broach spire. Along the sides of the church are mullioned and transomed lancet windows. Inside the church is a south gallery. Some of the windows contain stained glass.
