The church was founded around 1540 from the foundations of the then owner of the Wilkowo, Piotr Ossowski. Earlier, in the second half of the 15th century, beside the temple, a gothic defensive tower was erected, now used as a bell tower. In the early 18th century the temple was surrounded by a wall, and in 1800 the porch was rebuilt.
The church is preserved in its original, gothic form. The temple is a hall building, from the east is closed three-sided, with a sacristy and a treasury on the north side and a porch from the south. The interior covers the stellar vault. Below there are figural polychromes from the middle of the sixteenth century.
