Målselv Church (Norwegian: Målselv kirke) is a parish church in the municipality of Målselv in Troms county, Norway. It is located in the village of Målselv, about 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) north of Bardufoss. The church is part of the Målselv parish in the Indre Troms deanery in the Diocese of Nord-Hålogaland.

History[edit]

The previous wooden church (built in 1883) was struck by lightning in 1972 and burned down. This new concrete and brick church was built in 1978 to replace the old church. The architect Harry Gangvik designed the 360-seat church.[1]
