Bjordal Church (Norwegian: Bjordal kyrkje) is a parish church in Høyanger Municipality in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. It is located in the village of Bjordal. The church is part of the Bjordal og Ortnevik parish in the Sunnfjord deanery in the Diocese of Bjørgvin.
The white, wooden church, which has 167 seats, was consecrated on 1 November 1906. The architect was Victor Nordan, the son of the famous Norwegian church architect Jacob Wilhelm Nordan. Bjordal Church had the status of a chapel until 1 January 1997 when it was upgraded to a church. At the same time the new parish of Bjordal og Ortnevik was created with Ortevik Church and Bjordal Church being the parish churches. This meant that all the people in Høyanger on the south side of the fjord now had their own parish.
