Berg Church (Norwegian: Berg kirke) is a parish church of the Church of Norway in Berg Municipality in Troms county, Norway.[1] It is located in the village of Skaland. It is the main church for the Berg parish which is part of the Senja prosti (deanery) in the Diocese of Nord-Hålogaland. The white, stone church was built in a long church style in 1955 by the architect Hans Magnus. The church seats about 225 people.[2][3]

The altarpiece carved in wood was decorated by Torvald Kildal Moseid (1917-2000). Moseid also designed the stained glass in the church. The organ is a pneumatic organ from Vestre Orgelfabrikk. The church bell is from Olsen Nauen Bell Foundry (Olsen Nauen Klokkestøperi).[4][5]
