Designed as a chapel initially, it was known as “CMS Chapel” for many years. Some additions such as the choir-seats and altar were made to the original building. As it was started by Corrie, the natives of this place used to call it “Corrie Church” until 1887. The close-by street to the south side of the estate was known as Corrie Church Lane. Now, it is renamed as Dr. Kartik Bose Street.

Before the unification of the Church of North India it was an Anglican Church run by the Church Missionary Society. The roof of the church was rebuilt after 2003 and later the church under went major renovation. There is a big clock on either side of the Church steeple. Inside the Church there are rooms with memorial plaque to honour the contributions made by the distinguished devotees, including that of James Long. Also located close to the Chapel are St. Paul’s College on one side and the city’s first school for girls. Since 1874 the Priest-in-Charge has always been an Indian: this was not true of many churches across colonial India .
