There has been a tradition of Christian worship in Albury for more than a thousand years.

The parish of Albury is unusual as it has four churches.

The parish church of St Peter and St Paul which is in the heart of the Albury, the Barn church, St Michael's in Farley Green, the Saxon Church in Albury Park and the Catholic Apostolic Church at Sherbourne.

St Peter & St Paul's church is a remarkable example of Victorian architecture. It was consecrated in 1842 when it replaced the Old Saxon Church in Albury Park.

St Michael's Church is a converted 19th century barn It was given by Clara Courtney-Wells to be converted into a church as a memorial to her husband. It was dedicated in 1930. Services are held here occasionally.
