The current church was built between 1883 and 1885 by contractor Jean François to the plans of architect William Barber. In 1897 the church was expanded with the choir to a design by the architects Huvenne and Jasinski. After the First World War, in 1928, the Church House (Pastorij) was founded along the street.
