Loen Church (Norwegian: Loen kyrkje or Lokyrkja) is a parish church in Stryn Municipality in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. It is located in the village of Loen. The church is part of the Loen parish in the Nordfjord deanery in the Diocese of Bjørgvin. The white, octagonal, wooden church was built in 1838. It seats about 190 people. The church was consecrated on 9 September 1838.
The first church in Loen, probably a stave church, was erected in the 1200s. It was replaced by a timber long church in the 1600s. The church stood a long time without a church tower, but in 1707 a tower was built and it was funded by private donations. This church was used until the present church was built in 1838.
