It is one of only two churches in England privately owned and used for worship by a city corporation. The other is St Lawrence Jewry, London.

It was built as the chapel to the adjacent Gaunt's Hospital, now demolished, founded in 1220. Except for the west front, the church has been enclosed by later adjacent buildings, although the tower is still visible.
