The current Hærland church is the fourth church on the premesis, and this one is built of wood, and has approx. 500 seats and dates from 1879.

The first church was a stave church dedicated to St. Margareta. It is unknown when this was built, but it is assumed to be around 1408.

In 1701 a log church was built, It was located on the farm Revhaug. A small and unremarkable church. Until 1719-21, the king had owned the churches, but due to financial difficulties, a large number of churches were sold by Fredrik IV to private individuals, including Hærland's church.

After the church from 1701, a new church was set up, a little further east than today's church, roughly in the middle of the current stone fence that goes around the cemetery. This is known only from a photograph and an imprecise description by parish priest Wilse. This church, like the one from 1701, came to bear the mark of being privately owned. It was not very solid and had to be demolished as early as 1877.

Today's church had its foundation stone laid in July 1878 and was consecrated on March 19, 1879. This is a wooden church of clapboarded wood in the Gothic style, according to drawings by architect Welhaven.

Of the church's permanent fixtures, a Romanesque baptismal font from c. 1150. The basin is four-sided, but with a silver dish from 1879. In addition, a pulpit from 1654 has been preserved and stands in today's chapel. It is in oak and pine and has large field and bracket ornamentation. The colors are probably from the 1700s, with grey-white fillings with marbling and blue-grey wood.
