Built of coursed red sandstone rubble, the church has a 12thc. nave with three plain, round-headed windows, a 13thc. chancel, a 19thc. N transept and adjacent vestry, and a timber bellcote. The transept, now used as a baptistry, contains a Romanesque carved relief and a font, both brought from Lulsley church in 1974, when this was converted into a private dwelling (see Lulsley, Worcestershire).


Before 1912, Lulsey and Alfrick were chapelries of the church of Suckley. By DS, Suckley church had been given to Cormeilles Abbey in Normandy by the founder William, Earl of Hereford.

Although Pevsner tentatively attributes the font to the 17thc., it may be Romanesque. The sculptured panel could date from the early 12thc.
