When the present parish boundaries were formed there were five churches in the parish:
The Baptist chapel and Emmanuel hall have since become private residences. 


St. John the Baptist (C of E)
New Church The parish church of St John the Baptist is in the Diocese of Oxford and is set close to the village green at The Lee.  Built in the late 1860's, it replaced the ancient chapel sited nearby - now known as The Lee Old Church.

The parish church offers Sunday worship every week. A leaflet on St John The Baptist Church can be found here and full details of future services can be found at St John.

The Lee Old ChurchOld Church
The Old Church dates from the 13th Century and, according to Lipscomb’s history of Buckinghamshire, “… was originally built as a Chapel of Ease to Weston Turville and was granted… by the family of Turville to Missenden Abbey” .The church contains fine wall paintings from that period and later.

Nowadays the Church is preserved and managed by The Lee Old Church Trust.  A programme of events is held during the year (see Diary); the church remains consecrated.
