Parts of the building date from 1298. The west tower and spire were added around 1400.
The church has a 15th-century eagle lectern and pulpit from 1634.
On 9 February 1961 the church was designated a Grade I listed building.
In the late 1990s the stonework of the tower was repaired using local lias stone to fit in with the original architecture. The dangerous state of the spire required £200,000 to be raised for repairs.
The west tower has a ring of six bells. The third bell was cast in about 1450, possibly by the Bristol foundry. William Chamberlain of Aldgate, London cast the fourth bell in about 1480. George Davis of Bridgwater cast the fifth bell in 1799. Llewellins & James of Bristol cast the tenor bell in 1877 and the treble and second bells in 1910.
The patron of the Church of England parish is the Bishop of Wells. It is part of the Parish of Three Saints along with the Church of St Christopher, Lympsham and the Church of St Michael, Brent Knoll.
Charles Fane de Salis was the vicar in the late 19th century, before being made Suffragan Bishop of Taunton. From 1911 to 1935 the vicar was Archie Wickham who played cricket for Somerset County Cricket Club.
