Colehill is a leafy suburb of Wimborne and this church seems to harmonise rather well with its setting. It was designed by W.D.Caröe and consecrated in 1895. The architect was also responsible for a number of other churches in Dorset, most notably the east end of the Lady Chapel at Sherborne Abbey and a chapel in Gillingham Church, both in 1921.
This is a very interesting brick-built church with mock half-timbering and intriguing roof elevations and shapes. The use of dormer windows in the nave roof hint at clerestory.
The church is normally locked.
