This village church is the first thing you’ll see driving from Wilhelmshorst along the boulevard and past the fields towards Langerwisch. It dates back to a single-nave fieldstone building from the eighteenth century, built as a replacement for the church that had collapsed there. The weather vane on the steeple roof bears the year 1772, which represents the year of its completion. At the time, the interior was furnished in a late Baroque style, but was revised in the 1960s by Winfried Wendland and adapted to the tastes of the time.
The pulpit altar gave way to a simple, red-tiled centre. Only the pulpit itself and the gallery were retained. Since 1997 the church has been laboriously restored with the help of state funds for historical preservation, as well as a committed community. The roof truss and tiles, as well as the building’s facade, have been renovated and safeguarded against collapse. This was followed by maintenance of the interior space and the church steeple.
