Elgsnes Chapel (Norwegian: Elgsnes kapell) is a chapel of the Church of Norway in Harstad Municipality in Troms county, Norway. It is located in the village of Elgsnes on the island of Hinnøya, just northwest of the town of Harstad. It is an annex chapel for the Trondenes parish which is part of the Trondenes prosti (deanery) in the Diocese of Nord-Hålogaland. The brown, wooden church was built in a long church style in 1985 by the architect Edvard Ruud. The church seats about 100 people.[1]

The chapel is sometimes known as Hans Egedes minne, referring to the famous 17th-century missionary to Greenland who was from this part of Trondenes.
