Holy Family church was opened in 1967. Originally it had a railed sanctuary, high altar and provision for a baptistery at the west end. Plans for re-ordering were prepared by Harold Barker in 1973. These included removal of the high altar and creating a smaller forward altar, removal of the communion rails and the Lady altar.

The sanctuary floor was re-laid by James Keegan for the dedication of the church by Cardinal Cormac Murphy O’Connor on 13 May 2007.

The design of the church is marked by a tall bell tower at the southeast corner. The plan consists of a eastern narthex, a wide aisle-less nave, a square-ended sanctuary with a sacristy leading off the north side to the presbytery. The walls are of local brick and the roofs are copper clad. The east end has a gabled porch with two entrances.

The entrances lead into a small lobby area. The main space is entered under the east gallery, which has an open ironwork and glass front. The walls are of bare brick throughout, and the floors of patterned black and white marble in the sanctuary and grey/green and cream linoleum in the nave. The church is furnished with a square stone font with circular polished brass cover, simple communion rails (without gates), and gilded fibreglass statues of the Holy Family and Our Lady by Gordon Beningfield. At the east end are statues of St Patrick and the Sacred Heart, the latter by Mayer of Munich. The seating consists of plain open-backed benches.
