In the interior the walls are plastered with insulating material.

The church is built in red brick on a rectangular plan under a saddle roof with pans and a charcoal gray Holland crossing gutter. The western end wall is built on the existing tower from the 15th century. The tower has four members and a pavilion roof, the pointed arch-shaped entrance is in an equally pointed arched niche. In the fourth articulation of the tower are the striker arched belfry windows.
