There is no reference to a church or priest in the entry for the parish in the Domesday Book, which was compiled in 1086. This may indicate the absence of a church building at that stage or, alternatively, only the absence of a resident priest.
The main structure of the present building was erected in the 13th and 14th centuries. The church consists of a nave, chancel, south aisle and west tower. A detailed description appears on the Historic England website
East Farndon is part of a "united benefice" along with Arthingworth, Harrington and Oxendon. Each parish retains its own church building.
