Kelby church is dedicated to St Andrew and was previously a chapelry of Heydour ecclesiastical parish.[2] Its tower was rebuilt in 1881 after a collapse. The church basement is Norman and the font Early English, with pews originally from the chapel at nearby Grade II listed Culverthorpe Hall.[3][4]

A chapel for Primitive Methodists was established in 1859.[2]
