Medieval church with rich baroque decoration
The medieval village church, with rich baroque interior decoration, still contains components from the middle of the 13th century in its core. In 1760, however, it was renovated and changed. In the church interior there are 3 gravestones of family members of the old Mecklenburg noble family von Maltzahn. The organ is from 1854 from the Grüneberg workshop in Stettin. For tours and visits, please contact the local parish office and the sexton.
The church, which dates back to 1227, is in good condition thanks to restoration in the late 1980s. Among the special features of the church is the richly decorated pulpit altar and the Grüneberg organ, which was built around 1850. The charming location on Lake Kummerow in the midst of an extensive network of bike paths often brings tourists to the church's doorstep.
Parsonage as community center
In earlier times, there were as many as four churches in little Kummerow, the pastor recounted. Where the other three stood is not known. Services are held once a month in the Kummerow church. Thanks to oil heating, these can be celebrated all year round. With the Kummerow parsonage, the church congregation has other premises at its disposal. The historic building is partly used by the church community for community events and also rents out rooms. In addition to rooms for children's and youth recreational activities, there is a room for Christian instruction and a devotional room.
