The Church was consecrated in 1536 or 1539, probably on the same spot as an earlier one, as the local parish was formed in 1313.
The church patron was the village landlord Mikołaj Nidecki. From the second half of the C16th it served as first a Calvinist then an Arian church, before returning to Catholic hands in 1669. Inside there are impressive gothic carpentry details. The oldest artifact among the church fittings is the C16th font. The remaining fittings are mainly baroque: the main and side altars, the crucifix on the rood beam and the choir loft. The walls and ceiling feature architectonic painting which make use of trompe l’oeil.
