This church basically came into being as a result of a splinter group of Parishioners financially backed by mill owner Robert Smith, who because of the development of Longridge becoming centred on Berry Lane and the dilapidated state of St Lawrence's Chapel, wanted a new more central church. Work started in 1886 and the new church was consecrated in 1886. The tower was built in 1937.
