Minister for Ecclesiastical Affairs of Denmark (Danish: kirkeminister) is a Danish political minister office. The main responsibility of the minister is the Danish People's Church.

The office was created in 1916 when the post Kultus Minister was split up into the posts of Education Minister and Minister for Ecclesiastical Affairs. The new Minister for Ecclesiastical Affairs also took over the responsibility for culture from the Kultus Minister. In 1961 responsibility for culture was transferred to the Minister for Cultural Affairs.

Since 3 February 2014, as a result of a cabinet reshuffle, Marianne Jelved currently holds the post; the portfolio was previously held by Equalities Minister Manu Sareen.
