Situated in St John's Road, this building was erected in 1868/9. The architect was H Ewan Rumble who executed his design in the Decorated style. Originally the north west tower was topped with a spire, but this has been removed.
The tower is the only surviving part of the original church, which was substantially destroyed by bombing during World War II on 4th May 1942. The replacement church was erected in 1954-7, and was not directly attached to the surviving tower. According to a plaque on the tower, it was restored in 1960 and the ground stage converted into a chapel in memory of those who gave their lives for the cause of freedom in the two world wars. The bells were restored in memory of Charles Markham David (1899 - 1974).
