Until the 16th century, the temple served Catholics, after passing the owners of the village, von Knobelsdorff and the inhabitants of the settlement to Protestantism, the church became an evangelical congregation. At that time, the original interior was rebuilt to the requirements of the new liturgy. In the first half of the 17th century, during the Thirty Years War, the building suffered damage, which was repaired during reconstruction in 1674. Then the height of the nave was reduced by 3 meters. Subsequent works were carried out in the 19th century and after 1945, when the hosts of the temple were again Catholics.
