The list of churches in Sogn og Fjordane is a list of the Church of Norway churches in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. The churches are all part of the Diocese of Bjørgvin which also includes Hordaland county. The list is divided into four sections, one for each deanery (prosti; headed by a provost) in the county. Administratively within each deanery, the churches are divided by municipalities which have their own church council (fellesråd) and then into parishes (sokn) which have their own councils (soknerådet). Each parish may have one or more local church.[1]

In 2013, the old Ytre Sogn (Outer Sogn) deanery was dissolved. The old deanery included Gulen, Solund, Hyllestad, Høyanger, Balestrand, and Vik municipalities. The municipalities of Gulen and Solund were transferred to the Nordhordland deanery, which includes the northern municipalities in Hordaland county to the south. Hyllestad and Høyanger were transferred to Sunnfjord deanery, and Balestrand and Vik were transferred to Indre Sogn deanery.[2]

Nordfjord prosti[edit]

This deanery covers seven municipalities in northern part of Sogn og Fjordane county. The deanery is headquartered in the village of Nordfjordeid in Eid Municipality.
