The Protestant village church Vehlefanz is a listed church in the Brandenburg town of Vehlefanz. The core of the church is a late medieval field stone building from the 15th century, with older masonry also dating from the 12th / 13th century. The predecessor church dating from the 13th century could be included. A baroque redesign took place in the 18th century.In the course of the Christianization of the area, a church in Vehlefanz can be expected in the late 12th century. The first documentary mention, however, comes from a document from the Spandau monastery from 1420. During this time, the elongated field stone building with a square west tower that forms the core of today's church was built. The edge masonry and the edging of the openings are made of bricks.
At the beginning of the 18th century, the church was given a three-sided choir closure and its cross-shaped floor plan through additions to the nave. The window openings were enlarged and the entire building was plastered for the first time. The tower hood dates from 1738 when the old hood was completely demolished.
The first major renovation since 1750 took place from 2009 to 2017. In 2015 the interior was renovated, which is why the church could not be entered. On September 23, 2017, the church was reopened with a parish festival and service.Source: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorfkirche_Vehlefanz
