A double-height gabled red brick Gothic-revival style church, dates from 1923-1930. Rectangular plan form the building has a single storey flat roof porch to east, gabled chancel to west and a square-plan tower to north. The origins of the church can be traced back to the late 1890's when a site for both a church and a school was purchased in 1900 with construction being undertaken in two stages starting in 1923 with a foundation stone to completion in 1930.

A £10,000 grant will update facilities at St Simon's church and enable it to continue to serve the local community. Funding for the grant comes from the Department for Communities Historic Environment Division's Covid-19 Culture, Languages, Arts and Heritage Support Programme.
