Parish churches were commonly considered to be their town’s showcases and symbols of their residents’ aspirations. Therefore, on two occasions at the turn of the 20th century, Śródka dwellers refurbished this oldest building in the District after it had fallen into disrepair. To restore it, they held public fundraisers and used the money to renew the interiors and outer walls. They put a cross at the top and even wanted to restore the tower. Today, the 15th-century church towers over Śródka Market Square, occupying what used to be the centre of this town dating back to the 13th century.
