Hjerpsted Church

Hjerpsted church is probably one of the oldest here in Vestegnen. It should have been built in the 1130s, i.e. around the time of King Erik Ejegod, or just after.

About 40 years after the Reformation in Denmark, the parish was transferred from Ribe Diocese to Schleswig Diocese. Only after the reunification did the parish come under Ribe Diocese again.
