The church was built in 1930–32 and designed by the Lancaster architect Henry Paley of Austin and Paley, and cost £10,326 (equivalent to £510,000 in 2018).2018 It is constructed in brick with stone dressings, and has windows with mixed Decorated and Perpendicular tracery. Only the east end of the church and 3½ bays of the nave and aisles were completed. Brandwood and his co-authors consider that the interior is "of dignity and with several inventive touches". Because it was never completed, Hartwell and Pevsner in the Buildings of England series describe it as "a stump of a church".
It continues to be an active church in the Evangelical tradition.
The vicar is the Revd David O’Brien.
