Construction began in 1726 to the architect Thomas Steer's design and was completed in 1734.

However the 1867 appointment of a Jewish mayor was criticised from the pulpit and thereafter the city council ceased to use the church which declined and was closed in 1897 and subsequently demolished.  The Victoria monument now occupies the site of the former church and was built in 1902.
