Øye Church (Norwegian: Øye kyrkje) is a parish church in Surnadal Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. It is located between the two villages of Sylte and Skei. The church is one of two churches that make up the Øye og Ranes parish. The parish is part of the Indre Nordmøre deanery in the Diocese of Møre. The white, wooden church was built in 1871 by the architect Jacob Wilhelm Nordan. The church seats about 300 people.
There has been an "Øye Church" in the Sylte-Skei area for a long time. An Øye Church existed before 1589 when it was transferred administratively to the parish of Stangvik. In 1699 a new Surnadal parish was created and Øye Church was included in that new parish.
