Beiarn Church (Norwegian: Beiarn kirke) is a parish church in the municipality of Beiarn in Nordland county, Norway. It is located in the village of Moldjord. The church is part of the Beiarn parish in the Salten deanery in the Diocese of Sør-Hålogaland. The white, wooden church was completed in 1873. The construction started in 1872, but due to a storm on 21 January 1873, everything had to be demolished. The site was moved a short distance away and construction began again. The new church was consecrated on 23 October 1873. It seats about 310 people.[1]
