The church was probably built in a romantic style in the late 1100s. Originally it consisted of a nave, a chancel and a vestibule. It had a flat wooden roof but this was replaced with a cross vault in the Middle Ages. At the same time one more tower in the west and a porch in the south was built.
Because of the closeness to Gylle church, Kyrkoköpinge and Gylle had the same reverend during a long time. In the year 1555 Kyrkoköpinge church was under a demolition threat. It was considered that the inhabitants in Kyrkoköpinge could go to Gylle instead.
Originally there were two entrances, one for men and one for women. The men had to go through the porch, and the women had a separate entrance on the opposite side.
The external length of the church is around 26 meters, of which about half is the nave. The outer width is approximately 9 meters. Kyrkoköpinge church is sparsely decorated on the outside.
