An example of wooden ecclesiastical architecture, typical for the region.

History

The church was erected in the first half of the 17th century and was subsequently redesigned and restored on a number of occasions. The chancel annexes were added in 1971.

Description

The church is situated in the central part of the village of Strzelce, on a plot of land circumscribed by a fence. It is a single-nave church designed in the Baroque style, oriented towards the east. The church is a wooden log structure, positioned on a brick foundation with a plaster finish, its walls covered with weatherboards; the roof is clad with ceramic roof tiles. Inside, the church features a flat ceiling. The nave was designed on a roughly square floor plan, while the chancel, erected on a rectangular floor plan, features a semi-hexagonal end section. A pair of brick annexes adjoin the southern and northern walls of the chancel. A timber-framed porch with brick infill adjoins the western wall of the nave. The roofs are of the gable type. A steeple rises above the ridge of the nave roof. The walls are covered with weatherboards arranged in a vertical pattern and pierced with a number of rectangular window openings. The interior décor dates back to the 17th and 18th century. The church is accompanied by a bell tower.

Property of the parish - the structure can be viewed from the outside.
