The church was built from 1894 to 1904 using the new technique of armed cement, and was designed by the architect Anatole de Baudot (1834-1915). It was built without permission, by the sole will of his abbot who managed to raise the funds (with the approval of his bishop). The Ministry of Cults and the Administration intended to block him. In 1900, having not provided the plans, the abbot was ordered to have it demolished. Fortunately, the conflict ended with the intervention of a few eminent architects. The style of Saint-Jean-de-Montmartre is inspired byArt Nouveau. It shows all that religious architecture can draw from concrete. The church is decorated with eight beautiful murals, signed by the two artists Thierry and Plauzeau, and has a magnificent canopy. In addition to the four large stained-glass windows (including "The Crucifixion," "The Multiplication of Breads" and "The Adulterous Woman") are added the representations of two of the four horsemen of the Revelation of St. John and forty-eight triangular stained-glass windows depicting the litany of the Virgin.
The organ of Saint-Jean-de-Montmartre was built by Cavaillé-Coll in 1852 for the Sacred Heart of the Ferrandière School in Lyon. It was then transferred and reassembled in St. John's Church in 1910 by Mutin. In 1934, Gutschenritter added a pneumatic machine to improve the touch of the first keyboard, so that there would be no effort to play the combined keyboards. In 1931, the same builder added 3 new stops to the Swell: Quintaton 16', Nasard 2' 2/3 and Tierce 1' 3/5. In 1934, Gutschenritter intervened again to add a Barker machine to the Grand Organ. In 1979, Barbéris worked on the organ. Finally, in 2009, the organ was fully restored by Yves Fossaert.
