The presbytery is ended with a straight wall, on its axis from the eastern side, there is an unusually small sacristy. The eastern gables of the sacristy and the chancel are divided with pointed niches. The top of the sacristy is decorated with diagonal pilaster strips that pass into the pinnacles. Unusual for a small rural church is the architectural design of its interior. In the side walls of the chancel and the nave there are pointed niches. The interior is covered with neo-gothic ceilings with a semi-open roof truss.
