The church of St Martin, Exning dates from the late 12th Century. It has regular worship at 11 am every Sunday morning as well as other servcies.

It is a Grade 1 listed building, is situated in the centre of the village of Exning in a conservation area, in a large churchyard. The approach to the church from the West end through the churchyard is up a steep slope, reflecting the elevation of the church above the rest of the village of Exning. Until recently the church was clearly visible from the A14 Newmarket bypass, but this view has now been somewhat restricted by the erection of sound-reducing barriers on the road. At night the church is floodlit, the floodlights being a gift in memory of a local landowner’s wife.
