The foundation stone was laid on 23 July 1844 by Henry Pepys, the Bishop of Worcester. The church was built to designs of the architect Richard Cromwell Carpenter with funds from the Birmingham Church Building Society. It was consecrated by Pepys on 30 September 1846.
Its decorated gothic style and layout was admired by contemporary ecclesiologists for the correctness of its plan. It was the last church constructed by the Birmingham Church Building Society.
Out of this parish St Oswald's Church, Small Heath was formed.
A storm in 1894 damaged the spire. The vicar was in dispute with the churchwardens, and the repairs were not completed until after the vicar, Robert Foster Burrow, left in 1900. The spire was restored in 1901.
