Lønset Church (Norwegian: Lønset kirke) is a parish church in the municipality of Oppdal in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. It is located in the village of Lønset, along the Norwegian National Road 70. The red, octagonal, wooden building was built in 1863 and it was consecrated on 26 August 1863.
There was previously a church at Lønset just below the present church. It was built from 1772 to 1774. This church was used until 1863. The last worship service there was on Sunday, 19 July 1863. The old church was too small and in 1858 a committee was formed that would work on planning for the new church at Lønset. Two solutions were outlined: a cruciform church designed by John Elliott Storli and an octagonal church designed by Sjur Jamtseter. The committee chose the octagonal design.
