Christ Church, Markdale is in a 2-point parish with the smaller congregation of St. Mary's Anglican, Maxwell (left). The rector is the Rev'd Yvonne Summerfield.
The village of Markdale has a population of about 1400. In 2001 it amalgamated with Artemesia, Euphrasia and Osprey to form the Municipality of Grey Highlands. It is home to several industries including Chapman's Ice Cream and has an annual Ice Cream Festival in August.
