The Centre exists to provide education for church leaders from the non-Western world. It was founded by mission theologians from Africa, Asia and Latin America. OCMS offers taught Masters courses and PhD/MPhil research degrees. Its degrees are validated by Middlesex University. It is associated with the University of Oxford through the Bodleian Libraries. Many Oxford faculty members also provide supervision for PhD/MPhil research degrees.
The building was designed by the Gothic Revival architect George Edmund Street and built in 1860–62. Samuel Wilberforce, then Bishop of Oxford, consecrated it as the parish church of Saints Philip and James on 8 May 1862. The tower and spire, also designed by Street, were added in 1864–66. It is a Grade I listed building.
Immediately to the south is Church Walk, a pedestrian-only link between Woodstock Road and North Parade. On the south side of Church Walk is the former vicarage, 68 Woodstock Road, designed by Street's former assistant, Harry Drinkwater, and built in 1887. The vicarage is a Grade II listed building and is now part of St Antony's College, Oxford.
