First church in Hageri was built by Danish missioners in 1221. The awakening movement of 19th century increased the congregation and they needed a bigger building.
Designed by Ervin Bernhard in new roman style but with strong orthodox architecture motifs the church was consecrated in 1892. The alternating usage of rubble stone and bricks makes Hageri church unique among Lutheran churches. Interesting to know: - Hageri church is the only church in Estonia protected by Saint Lambertus. - In the altar wall made by J. Rabe the parts of Ackermann altar wall were used. - In the church you can see ring crosses
