The village Grade II* listed Anglican church is dedicated to St Helena. The church is in Perpendicular and Decorated style, with chancel nave and vestry, and a 12th-century tower. In 1838 a wooden spire covered in copper was added. The church was restored in 1859 by Samuel Sanders Teulon, who rebuilt both aisles and re-roofed the nave.
The village school is Kirmington St Helena's Church of England Primary school, built in the 19th century, and extended, with additional facilities for pre-school children, in 2007.

Closed in 1953, it was used for agricultural flying until being converted for commercial use by Lindsey County Council. It opened as Humberside Airport in March 1974.
