Reinli Stave Church dates back to around 1326. Prior to this, the site has been home to two other churches. The only remains left of the first church are graves, and the second must have burnt down or been demolished.
Reinli Stave Church is a parish church, but is only used during summer. For the rest of the year, the chapel further down the road is used. Reinli Stave Church still has 12 medieval consecration crosses. These have been painted black, and are believed to date back to around 1326. Reinli stave church is the only one in Norway with all consecration crosses intact. The altarpiece is a medieval triptych, but it was painted in the 1890s and 1920s. A crucifix hangs on the choir wall. Fittings in wrought iron, the soapstone font and a bell in the belfry are all from the Middle Ages. The wall features a hatch for the leprous, which was used to let them confess and receive Holy Communion.
