The church was built in the Victorian style stylized as English Gothic in 1882-1884.

A lot of English travelers who visited Moscow wrote about the strange impression made on them by this church – it seemed to them that they were not in Moscow, but in an ordinary provincial English town, so typical for them was the Church of St. Andrew.

In 1894, near the entrance to the church site, a small two-story building was constructed for the church superintendent with funds from Jane McGill to commemorate her husband, the owner of the iron mills, Robert McGill.
