Jõelähtme church was consecrated to Virgin Mary, the most beloved saint in the Middle Ages -  a most telling fact in itself of the importance of the church. A Gothic-styled church was built in the 14th century replacing the original; the church, having been rebuilt several times since, has a different appearance now. The last rebuilding in 1910 was carried out after a conflagration: the gable end tower was replaced by a massive tower erected in front of the portal. Although the church has been subject to damage at various times, it still has the Late Renaissance pulpit and the Baroque altar (completed in 1670).
The grave of Gustav Heinrich Schüdlöffel (1798-1859), pastor who ministered the congregation for a long time and is known for his literary achievments, can still be seen in the cemetery.
