There has been a church on this site for over a thousand years, although the building here today has been much altered and extended over the centuries. The north chancel wall is 12th century, and the chancel was extended eastwards in the 13th or 14th century, and apparently widened at the same time. The nave dates from the 14th century.
The church of today was originally built in the Decorated style. In 1661 the church in Nuthurst was extended by some 6.5 metres on the western end on the restoration of the monarchy.
During 1856-1860 the sandstone cladding was applied to the exterior of the building to all but the north chancel wall, and the south porch was replaced. Over the same period, the west end was altered and extended by a further 5 metres and the previous squat tower was replaced by the elegant shingled spire which still adorns the building today. The timberwork around the belfry was further altered between 1895 and 1900. To celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Queen Victoria, the church was thoroughly repaired and restored on the inside and out.

Nuthurst is a village and civil parish in the Horsham District of West Sussex,2.5 miles south Horsham.
Its Church of England parish church is St. Andrews, which has links with the nearby St. Andrews C of E aided school. There is one pub, the Black Horse.
Listed Buildings and Structures
Listed buildings and structures are officially designated as being of special architectural, historical or cultural significance. There are over half a million listed structures in the United Kingdom, covered by around 375,000 listings.
Listed status is more commonly associated with buildings or groups of buildings, however it can cover many other structures, including bridges, headstones, steps, ponds, monuments, walls, phone boxes, wrecks, parks, and heritage sites, and in more recent times a road crossing (Abbey Road) and graffiti art (Banksy 'Spy-booth') have been included.

In England and Wales there are three main listing designations;
Grade I (2.5%) - exceptional interest, sometimes considered to be internationally important.
Grade II* (5.5%) - particularly important buildings of more than special interest.
Grade II (92%) - nationally important and of special interest.

There are also locally listed structures (at the discretion of local authorities) using A, B and C designations.

In Scotland three classifications are also used but the criteria are different. There are around 47,500 Listed buildings.
Category A (8%)- generally equivalent to Grade I and II* in England and Wales
Category B (51%)- this appears generally to cover the ground of Grade II, recognising national importance.
Category C (41%)- buildings of local importance, probably with some overlap with English Grade II.

In Northern Ireland the criteria are similar to Scotland, but the classifications are:
Grade A (2.3%)
Grade B+ (4.7%)
Grade B (93%)
