It was formed as a parish in 1855, from the parish of St Mary's Church, Nottingham. The site was a free gift from G.J.P. Smith. It consisted of 3176 sq yards of the old Clay Field and cost £375. The church building cost £4,000 (equivalent to £376,560 in 2019).
It was built as a Trustee's Church under the Act of Parliament of William IV. The trustees were Henry Kingscote of Spring Gardens, London, Francis Wright of Osmaston, Derbyshire, Revd. Charles Eyre of Rampton Hall, Nottinghamshire and Revd. Joshua William Brooks, vicar of St Mary's.
It was built by the architect Robert Jalland in the early English thin Gothic perpendicular style, with twin octagonals at the west end, crowned with pepper pots with crockets.
There were 1,100 seats, half of them free from pew-rents.
