The church of St. James the Apostle in Więcławice dates back to 1748.
The most recentreconstruction was performed in the 18th century and in 1757 the church was consecrated. It is a single-nave baroque structure. The interior holds three rococo altarpieces (1700s), the main one featuring an image of the patron of the parish St. James the Apostle. Other interesting items include a Gothic triptych of St. Nicolas (1477), painted on boards; a sculpture of the Virgin Mary with the Child (around 1410); as well as Gothic, baroque and rococo chasubles and other precious liturgical items. A wooden pillar-framework belfry stands next to the church (1846).
