The Church was founded as a priory of Augustinian Canons in about the year 1162. Dedicated to St John the Baptist and St Thomas of Canterbury (Becket), the church and priory buildings gradually expanded until the dissolution of the monasteries nearly 400 years later during the reign of King Henry VIII.

Following a fire in 2018, Royston Parish Church is currently undergoing refurbishment, and services are being held at Royston Town Hall or online.
