Originally built in 1849 in the gothic style with stone cladding and an iron arcade as a chapel for St Mary's Hall School. It later served as the Parish Church for the Sussex Square and Lewes Crescent area of Kemp Town. On closure in 1985 it returned to its original use as the chapel to the adjacent Anglican girls' boarding school.

The images below were taken on the 12th March 2010. Rather worryingly the church seemed disused and surrounded by security fencing so perhaps the school no longer uses the building.
Here is a detail of a rainwater hopper carrying the date 1891, presumably when the small vestry was added on the north side of the chancel.
In 1995/6 the church was used by the congregation of St John the Baptist Catholic Church during building work and again in 1998/9 by St George's for the same reason.
