It was created out of the parish of St. Mary's Church, Nottingham through the impetus of the vicar of St. Mary's, Joshua William Brooks. The trustees of the new church were Thomas Adams, lace manufacturer, Frances Butcher Gill, a philanthropic silk merchant, Robert Holden of Nuthall, Revd. Edmund Holland of Saxmundham, Revd. Charles Bridges.
The foundation stone was laid on the 23 September 1863 by Sydney Pierrepont, 3rd Earl Manvers. The church was consecrated on 26 September 1864.
The first incumbent was Henry Jemson Tebbutt. He planned and built the daughter church of St. Andrew's Church, Mansfield Road, which he moved to as first incumbent when it opened in 1870.
The second incumbent was James Dawson Lewis, a Cambridge scholar. During his thirty-year incumbency the church was enlarged five times, and the school rooms enlarged fifteen times. He earned the nickname the "running parson" as he ran to meet people in trouble. He opened two daughter churches, St. Jude's Church, Mapperley, and Emmanuel Church, Woodborough Road.
St. Bartholomew's Church, Nottingham was formed out of this parish in 1902.
