The Grade II listed Anglican parish church is dedicated to St Bartholomew. The church is mainly in Decorated style, and formerly cruciform in plan before losing its north transept. It has a low central bell-tower. On the floor of the church is a monumental brass with an effigy of Sir John Skypwyth, 1415. St Bartholomew's was repaired and re-seated in 1863 The manor of Covenham was an endowment to Covenham Priory, which itself was given by William I to the abbey of St Carileph at Le Mans. In 1303 the priory became unprofitable and was sold to Kirkstead Abbey.
In the 19th century Covenham held Wesleyan, Primitive and Free Methodist chapels.[4]
