The church was built in 1868, on land given by the Beckett family of Kirkstall Grange who paid £10,000 towards it. The architects were Edmund Beckett Denison and W H Crossland. The church is Grade II* listed. It is set back from the busy Otley Road, with a cricket field and the parish war memorial (Grade II listed) nearer the road.
There are two or three services every Sunday and a midweek communion service. For up to date information the church website should be consulted.
The church works with St Michael's, the parish church of the adjacent parish of Headingley, for example by holding early Sunday communion services alternately. Through Churches Together in Headingley the church has links with Christians of many other denominations locally.
