The St Peter and St Paul the Apostles parish church in Police-Jasienica is a building that is really conspicuous, not only due to its architecture, but also because a place where it is situated. Elevated high above the street, it is a building that dominates over the town. Its beginnings as a wooden church date back to the end of the 13th century. After a fire, which damaged the building in the 14th century, the church was rebuilt in stone. However, over the years, it fell in disrepair in the late 17th century. The church was renovated and expanded in 1725, referring with its form to the Gothic style. During this renovation, a tower was added on the western side of the building. Unfortunately, in the second half of the 19th century, the church was again struck with a fire. After these events, a new tower had to be erected. It was located above the nave and was topped with a sphere on which a cross was situated. In this period, the presbytery was also added on the eastern side of the building. Up to this day, there is a painting from 1858 entitled “Christ speaking with Maria and Marta” (oil on canvass). The building was consecrated as a Roman Catholic church on June 29th, 1947, and since then, each year a church fair has been organized on the anniversary of the event. The church in Police-Jasienica has been entered into the West Pomeranian provincial register of historic monuments (under the number A-500 from 5.07.1958). The current parish priest is Rev. Waldemar Szczurowski. The parish supervises a branch church in Tatynia. The church’s driveway is located on a flat ground.
