There seems to have a been a church here since around 1270 but sadly it fell into disrepair after the Reformation. That church was replaced ca. 1832 and that building was restored in 1889. A new church, St Paul's was built around 1905 on the site of what is now the village hall. The present St Paul's church was built in 1933. Burials still take place in St. Agatha's churchyard.
