The medieval church at Waddington was totally destroyed in May 1941 in a bombing raid on the nearby RAF base.

The present church, consecrated in 1954, has a plain exterior of Ancaster stone, with a large west window to the nave and a north-west tower.

The churchyard contains a number of Commonwealth War Graves.
