There has been a church on this site since the late Anglo-Saxon period. The current building was completed in 1900 and was described by John Betjeman as "the finest example of Victorian church architecture in the south west". The previous church on the site was started in 1816 and was built in a Greek Doric style but burnt down in 1890.
The first organ was installed in 1817 and was by William Thomas. This was later transferred to Sidmouth Methodist Church.
The current organ was installed in 1902 by Hele and Co. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.
