History[edit]

There has been a church at Utvik since the 1200s. The stave church apparently existed until the early 1600s. In 1617, a new cruciform church was built to replace the previous church. The present church was built in 1840 to replace the previous church. The present church was consecrated on 29 November 1840.[3]
