A quiet oasis amid the bustle of Riccarton Road, the Anglican church was begun in 1923 as a memorial to local men killed in the First World War. Constructed of brick, faced with Halswell stone, the exterior of the church has a number of cherubim, each thought to be a likeness of those who built the church.

There are also coiled snakes, shells, the Star of David, lilies and Lebanon cedars.
