1934 by Welch, Cachemaille-Day and Launder. Free Gothic style with brick walls,
reinforced concrete floors and slate-clad roofs with steel trusses. The church
has a rectangular plan with intersecting splays as buttresses at the junctions of
each bay in all external elevations. The walls rise to form a gable over centre
bays at front and rear. East, west and south elevations with windows in the form
of simplified triple lancets with simplified dagger or spandrel lights over, four
such to the west elevation including one to the choir and one to the south elevation.
Tripled lancet also to the gabled centre bay of the front elevation with paired
lancet with inset herring-bone tiling to each flanking bay. Flight of steps to
centre entrance through two pairs of glass multi-panel doors with common, reinforced
concrete flat hood over, beneath paired brick-arched semi-circular tympana with
inset pantiles in panelled strips.

Two storey and lower school wing to east (as described in 1934 plan) with plain
parapet, six two-light first floor mullioned windows with single light window at
right hand end; on ground floor, four similar windows, square-headed doorway with
two wood-panelled doors and single-light window at right hand end.

Slightly higher hall and church parlour wing (nomenclature from 1934 plan) at east
end, the front wall in similar style to the side walls of the church. Three windows
with paired lancet lights, the outer windows with "giant" or two-storey frames with
herring-bone tiling between flat-arched vestibule lights and the pointed upper lights
to church parlour. Central window above a doorway with glazed tympanum and flat
reinforced concrete hood over a pair of wood panelled doors.
