Christ Church was a corrugated iron building of 1885 with a north west tower. Considered unsafe, it became disused in the 1960s and was subsequently demolished. Services resumed at the thatched church of St Peter.

The seats were said to have been designed by Ewan Christian and came from a church in Surrey. Pevsner called the colour scheme 'battleship grey with pitch-pine'.

St Peter's Church, the only thatched church in Lincolnshire was built in the early seventeenth century.

Markby, St Peter contains thirteenth century stone from the nearby Augustinian Priory, including the dogtooth on the chancel arch.

Inside are box pews, a two-decker pulpit and a three-sided communion rail. It is said that the roof was originally tiled.

St Peter's church, though modest in size and architectural interest, has always attracted visitors on account of its thatched roof.

The thatched roof of St Peter's seems to be need of repair in this early twentieth-century postcard of the church.
