Rode has had an interesting ecclesiastical History, at one time there being five Churches (two Anglican establishments, a Primitive Methodist Chapel (now re-named The Old Ebenezer) a separate Methodist Chapel, and Rode Baptist Chapel. The Parish Church (St Lawrence, Rode) remains open, and following the formation of a Local Ecumenical Partnership between the Methodist and Baptist Fellowships in the late ‘80s and the refurbishment of the Baptist Chapel in 1991, Rode Chapel is now the non-conformist witness in Rode. The second Anglican Church (Christchurch) is now a private house, as is the former Methodist Chapel.
