Since 1998, the German Foundation for Monument Protection has supported restoration work on the village church in Gehren together with the Hilde Hillesheimer Foundation. The rectangular building made of field stones was extensively rebuilt in the 18th century. The west tower, a half-timbered construction above the gable, also dates from this phase. Inside the flat-roofed church the baroque furnishings have been preserved, including the pulpit from the first half of the 18th century, the altar from 1776, the choir stalls and the organ gallery.
