Kuusalu Church which is dedicated to protodeacon martyr St. Lawrence is considered to be one of the oldest stone churches in Northern Europe. It could have been the Gotlandish Cistercian monks of the priory of a Roma monastery locating in Kolga who started to build a house of God on the boundaries of their landed property in Kuusalu most probably at the end of the 13th century and according to their own custom next to holy springs, not on a crest of a hill, but in a hollow. In addition to the pulpit, altar and tower clock the older art heritage in St. Lawrence Church in Kuusalu also includes a chandelier, candle holders and an embossed brass bracket from the 17th century and Eucharistic vessels made of tin.
