Sira Church or Eresfjord Church (Norwegian: Sira kyrkje/Eresfjord kyrkje) is a parish church in Nesset Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. It is located in the village of Eresfjord. The church is part of the Eresfjord parish in the Indre Romsdal deanery in the Diocese of Møre. The white, wooden, octagonal church was built in 1869. The church seats around 307 people.
There was a stave church in Eresfjord in the Middle Ages, but that church was torn down and replaced with a new cruciform church around 1710. That church stood until 1868 when it was then later replaced with the current octagonal church.
