St Asaph church, Llanasa is a Medieval Perpendicular style church comprising a nave and chancel under a single roof and with a west tower, and a parallel south aisle under a separate roof with a porch. The church is built of rubble stone with lighter freestone dressings and a slate roof with overhanging eaves and with behind coped gables on moulded kneelers. The aisle has a porch which has a segmental pointed arch. The church holds the tomb of Sir Peter Mostyn (d.1605) and is a low chest tomb with a Latin inscription band below the moulded cornice of the cap stone.

The east windows are 15th century with later restoration. The north wall has mainly square-headed Tudor-Gothic windows. The north door is round-headed, the head inscribed: 'Edward Foulks, William Jones, Churchwardens 1750'. The doorway has a boarded door with strap hinges.

The tower has a splayed base, tall lower stage, and narrower upper stage with pyramidal stone roof. It has round-headed bell openings. The west wall of the aisle has a lean-to boiler room, above which a re-used stone set into the wall is carved with Norman relief decoration.

The church was remodelled in the 18th and 19th centuries.
