Hadsel Church (Norwegian: Hadsel kirke) is a parish church in the municipality of Hadsel in Nordland county, Norway. It is located in the village of Hadsel, just east of the town of Stokmarknes on the island of Hadseløya. The church is part of the Hadsel parish in the Vesterålen deanery in the Diocese of Sør-Hålogaland. The red, wooden, octagonal church building was constructed in 1824 and it seats about 500 people. The present church is the fourth church to stand on this site since the 1300s.[1][2]
