This relatively late Gothic-inspired church is characteristic of the small, almost delicate, scale that Craighill often employed. Its material, however, is more remarkable than its design. Except for a modicum of carved limestone trim, the church is faced entirely with Virginia greenstone. The single nave interior is sheltered under a wooden beamed ceiling.
