The central cultural and historical monument in Vojsko is the parish church of sv. Jožef (St. Joseph) from 1669, which had for a long time been a subsidiary of Spodnja Idrija. The village was granted its own priest as late as 1750, and it became an independent parish in 1807.

The church, located at the entrance to Vojsko, has a beautiful terracotta Way of the Cross, some 100 years old, depicted in relief technique. The interior of the church is adorned by two side altars and the main altar, dedicated to St. Joseph. The nave ceiling is decorated with frescoes, which were re-discovered in 1983. Four great church teachers are probably depicted in the hearts. On the big fresco shepherds and the Wise Men of the East are bringing their gifts to the Newborn. The organs in the choir loft have served their purpose for 98 years already. They have recently been renovated. At the same time stairs that lead to the choir loft were added. Before that access to the choir loft was from the outside. The church has had heating installed since 2007.
