Herbaijum (West Frisian: Hjerbeam) is a small village in Waadhoeke municipality in the province Friesland of the Netherlands and had around 253 citizens in January 2014. Before 2018, the village was part of the Franekeradeel municipality.
A near complete restoration of the church, except for the north wall, was undertaken in 1872 under the guidance of architect P.J. Jaarsma. The north wall consists largely of yellow, mediaeval bricks—called kloostermoppen—which were locally repaired. Any missing ones were replaced by similar small, yellow bricks made locally in Frisia. The tower on the west side was probably built in the 1920s, and has a constricted, octagonal spire and is roofed with slate tiles.
According to a gable stone, the church was again restored in 1985.
