The Catholic monastery was later closed and the church became a Lutheran church, the Church of Holy Cross.

The medieval wall and arch paintings in the two-aisle grey granite church tell the whole Biblical history of salvation in short. The clock tower was built in 1816 and stones from the ruins of the Church of the Holy Trinity were used to build it. The whitewashed tower has served as a landmark for the seafarers. The church seats approximately 800 people.
