The church building dates from about the fifteenth century, replacing a previous Norman building. It was re-roofed in 1867 and was restored in 1905. The pillars are similar in design to St Mary's Church, Totnes, which was being built in 1432, and the churches may have shared an architect.
The church contains monuments to the Upton family of Lupton House, and to the judge Francis Buller. Its archives are held by the South West Heritage Trust.
The Friends of St Mary's, Brixham, a registered charity (no. 1041867) has the stated aim "to maintain, repair, restore, preserve, improve, beautify and reconstruct for the benefit of the public the fabric of the church".
