From the medieval church comes the grandstand railings with painted productions of Jesus and the apostles, its a work from year 1775 by the painter Johan Cullman from Landskrona. The original retable consists of two paintings, Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection that are made by Carl Mörth, a draft champions at Lund University. The retable is now placed at the north wall.

The Font made by sandstone from Höör is from 1100s second half and made by Mårten Stenmästare (Mårten stone Masters). The rim of the bowl is Mårtens signing with runes “Mårten made me”. Font has a late Gothic black stained oak lid and a brass, which is a Nürnberger work, both from 1500s.
