This church was built for Frederick Edward Rawson and designed by W. S. Barber for a congregation of 300. It cost 7,000. It was consecrated on 23rd September 1880, the year after Rawson's death. It was one of the first churches to be constructed with reinforced concrete.

In 1882, schools for 200 children were built to the north of the church.
The church and the windows were severely damaged by fire in 1917. It was restored, but was closed in 1968, and the building was demolished in 1973. The font was moved to Saint George's Church, Sowerby. (Malcolm Bull)
