The church was completed in 1854 and consecrated in 1858.  It is built in Victorian Romanesque style, whereas the rectory is built in Victorian Rustic Gothic style.
The church building is noted for its modern stained glass windows and altar panels, both the work of renowned Australian artist Robert Juniper. The original High Altar and Walsingham Shrine feature Juniper's paintings.
The bells were specially cast for York, and are hung in the bell tower which was restored after the Meckering earthquake.
