Grane Church (Norwegian: Grane kirke) is a parish church in the municipality of Grane in Nordland county, Norway. It is located in the village of Grane, about 8 kilometres (5.0 mi) north of the municipal center of Trofors. The church sits along the European route E06 highway, just 250 metres (820 ft) from the river Vefsna.

The church is the main church for the Grane parish in the Indre Helgeland deanery in the Diocese of Sør-Hålogaland. The wooden building was constructed in 1860 and it seats about 230 people. The architects were Andreas Grendestad and Andreas Nilsskog.[1] A new service building was constructed near the church in 1999, and it is used for church offices.[2]
