The Danish Seamen’s Church and Church Abroad (Danish Danske Sømands- og Udlandskirker) is a Protestant church. It was founded 1 January 2004 as the result of a fusion between the Danish Church Abroad and the Danish Seamen's Church in foreign ports. It was established to help Danes travelling abroad, particularly seafarers and migrant workers.

There are 53 Danish seamen's and overseas churches around the world. Several churches operate on a Scandinavian basis with Swedish and Norwegian churches. The Danish Church in Southern Schleswig belongs to the church.

The Danish Seamen's Church and Church Abroad is working on an Evangelical-Lutheran foundation and in affiliation with the Danish Peoples Church in Denmark.
