Byneset Church (Norwegian: Byneset kirke) is a medieval church in the Byneset area of the city of Trondheim in Sør-Trøndelag, Norway. The church is part of the Byneset parish in the Heimdal deanery in the Diocese of Nidaros.
The church was consecrated as St. Michaelskirken and dedicated to the Archangel Michael. The year of consecration is not exactly known, but it is assumed that it was about 1180. The same mason signatures are also found at the Nidaros Cathedral, indicating that the same masons were used in the construction of both churches. The church is built of stone in a Romanesque style and is a long church. The tower was built around 1650. In 1656, a Church porch was constructed in front of the west gate. The church was renovated in 1811 and again in the 1970s.
