The Protestant village church of St. Michaelis is in the Großleinungen district of the city of Sangerhausen in the Mansfeld-Südharz district in Saxony-Anhalt . It belongs to the parish area Oberndorf in Kirchenkreis Eisleben-Sömmerda the Evangelical Church in Central Germany .


The village church was first mentioned in a document in 1427, when a new building and renovation was billed. Accordingly, there was probably a church in town earlier.

In 1615 the church was given the shape it has preserved to this day. The church tower with the tower room is to the east of the nave . Remnants of an old vault in the walls under the tower and staircase are evidence of a predecessor building that is not exactly dated, which the crypt confirms.

In 1726, after previous construction work, the pulpit altar was installed , which was dismantled in 1974. Today, a brick table with a stone top serves as an altar , above which a panel painting from the year 1553 from the school of Lucas Cranach the Younger is attached. It depicts the Last Judgment with the praying founders. Next to the picture is a sculpture of Christ . The church is well preserved.

In 1876 the Wilhelm Rühlmann company from Zörbig installed the two-manual organ with 16 registers .
