Sjørslev Kirke

Take a walk in the past

Sjørslev Kirke

In 1544, Steward of the Realm Mogens Gøye, the owner of Aunsbjerg, carried out major renovation and modernisation of the church. It is assumed that the large square tower was also built by the estate owner. Again in 1768 and later, major restoration work was carried out on the exterior and the interior of the church. The baptismal font is especially interesting. It is believed to be from 1123–45. The font is decorated with two double lions sharing a man’s head.
