The church is situated just east of the little stream called Hoed å. It is build of chalk stone, which is typical for the area, and presents it self with white washed walls and a red tiled roof. The church was build by the cisterian munks from the monastery at Øm near Ry, after they got land given to them by Bishop Svend of Århus in 1183. The church is build in roman style and has undergone several restorations and changes. The porch and the tower was added in the midle ages. It is said that the church bell came from Katholm castle, where it was rung at meal times. The altar piece was erected in 1594 but has had major restaurations done in 1857 and 1936. The pulpit was installed in 1603.
