Pęzino – church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary

History

   The church in Pęzino was erected in the sixteenth century on the initiative of the then town owner, Maćko III from the Pomeranian family Borkowie. In the second half of the 16th century it was rebuilt for the Evangelical parish. Originally, the church had a timber tower, which burned in 1902 from a lightning strike. It was rebuilt after four years, replacing the wood with a brick. With it, a north-facing porch and southern chapel were erected, the interior of the church was renovated and the shape of the windows was changed. The next renovation of the interior and the roof was carried out in 1956.

Architecture

   The church was originally a simple aisleless building erected of erratic stones and bricks on a rectangular plan with dimensions of 20 x 11.4 meters, without an externally separated chancel. Initially, there was a wooden tower on the west side of the nave. The most decorative element of the building was the eastern gable, decorated with brick double blendes with tracery motifs. The interior of the church was covered with a wooden, beam ceiling.
