Built as a Congregational Church (latterly United Reformed Church), it closed in 1977 and was sold to the Roman Catholic Church and dedicated in 1978. It had opened in 1883 to designs by Searle and Hayes.
Originally a proprietary chapel built by F. Hurlbatt in 1807, he added transepts in 1824. It became a parish church in 1855, after which a chancel was added in 1882 by Arthur Cawston and the street front and baptistery in 1903 by William Newton Dunn. The west end including the baptistery is now screened off from the rest of the church.
