Bakka Church (Norwegian: Bakka kyrkje) is a parish church in Aurland Municipality in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. It is located in the village of Bakka, on the shores of the sparsely populated Nærøyfjorden. The church is part of the Nærøy parish in the Indre Sogn deanery in the Diocese of Bjørgvin.
The white, wooden church, which has about 200 seats was built in 1859. It was designed by the architect Christian Henrik Grosch and it was consecrated on 11 May 1859. Prior to the building of this church, the people living along the Nærøyfjorden belonged to the nearby Undredal parish. When the new church was built at Bakka, the Nærøy area became a separate parish. Nærøy parish is the smallest parish in Sogn og Fjordane county in the Diocese of Bjørgvin with 104 members in 1999. In a normal year, there are about one or two baptisms and about the same number of confirmands.
