St David's is a large church built in the Gothic style of local two toned white/grey sandstone with rich brown accents of ironstone, lancet windows, and an open roof with ornamental rafters.

The stained glass windows of the chancel are completely filled with late Victorian glass, the most significant being the east window of three lancets, dated 1884, most likely the work of Lavers & Westlake.

At the west end is the church's newest feature, the central window of three more stepped lancets, which was filled with stained glass by Derek Hunt in 2006 in a very modern style with a striking montage of Christian symbols in a columnar composition.
