Christchurch is a grade II listed building built in 1851 by the architect T. H. Wyatt with funds from Lord Ailesbury, who also erected the Cadley National School. The church is now used as a private home, having been closed and deconsecrated due to a shortage of regular parishioners and funding.

The church is constructed from flint with limestone bandings and dressings, and has a slate roof.

The building consists of a nave and chancel with the main entrance under the south-west tower. The south vestry is at right-angles to the chancel, which is made up of two bays with angle buttresses. There are two-light windows in a 14th century style to both the nave and chancel, and a five-light east window. The building has a lean-to at the west end made asymmetrical with gabled windows. The tower is of two stages with large two-light upper windows and a short-pyramidal stone spire. The interior has been converted for domestic use with a vault under the tower and the chancel divided horizontally into two storeys.
