The Lutheran St. James' Church (German: St. Jakobi-Kirche) was erected around 1160 in Romanesque style from boulders, but later often altered. It is decorated by a carved altar of an unknown artist of about 1520. It stood originally in Husum and Schwabstedt acquired it in 1834 together with paintings of the Twelve Apostles and scenes of the Passion of Jesus. They are pieces of the Tönning-based Dutch painter Govert van Achten, who created them in 1602. Bishop Ulrik donated the carved pulpit, by Hans Pepper from Rendsburg, and the wooden baptismal font in 1606. His many titles and coats-of-arms cover pulpit and font.
