The nave roof projects above north and south side aisles incorporating clear storey lights and offering a long vertical internal appearance. The roofs are finished with natural slate. The west end the church is terminated with large stone buttresses framing the nave gable and topped with a open faced stone external bell housing. At the centre point of the nave roof the church has a ventilated lead covered cupola.

The northeast end of the church has been extended to form a meeting room with independent access. This sits next to the clergy vestry and chancel. The meeting room was built in stone in the 1990s and includes facilities for the disabled.
