The church belongs to the Norra Mo Parish within the Diocese of Skara of the Church of Sweden. It was built in the late 17th century, replacing a Medieval church demolished in May 1666. The new church was completed in May 1695. The church is built entirely of wood. South of the church stands a wooden bell tower built in 1686. The church has a sandstone baptismal font dating from the Middle Ages. The altarpiece was created in northern Germany in the early 17th century and the wood-carved pulpit with canopy dates from 1670. Between 1886 and 1890, the church underwent re-construction under the direction of architect Helgo Zettervall (1831–1907).[2][3]
