Lur's Church was rebuilt in 1862, reincorporating many of the features and materials from the earlier church that stood on the site. The pulpit is decorated with panels depicting the four evangelists, which were made in the seventeenth century. The baptismal font, carved, of soapstone, was created in the thirteenth century. The altarpiece was made in the seventeenth century, though the paintings it frames date two hundred years later. The modern church is built in a neo classical style though much of the construction material and decorative features came from the original medieval church.
