As Morecambe grew during the nineteenth century the need for a church to the west of Queen Street became apparent. The foundation stone for the church of St Laurence was laid in 1877 as a daughter church to Holy trinity Poulton le Sands. It became a parish in its own right shortly after World War 1.

The church closed in 1981 and the two parishes merged to become Holy Trinity with St Laurence.
