These crosses predate the building of churches. In the 6th and 7th centuries, wooden crosses marked the spots where priests or monks preached to the local community. These were later replaced with stone crosses such as this one but became redundant to a great extent when the churches were built and were eventually phased out altogether. Many villages still have the remains of the old preaching crosses even if it's only a stump.
