The original Christ Church was erected on the north side of Lombard Street in 1836-7 by J D Paine.

It is built of stock brick and stone in Early English style, and consists of a chancel and nave with three gables and groups of three lancets at each end. There is a tall lancet arch to the straight-ended chancel. there are galleries on cast iron columns.

The church was restored and new organ installed in 1880s.
