Hafslo Church (Norwegian: Hafslo kyrkje) is a parish church in Luster Municipality in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. It is located in the village of Hafslo. The church is part of the Hafslo parish in the Indre Sogn deanery in the Diocese of Bjørgvin. The white, wooden church, which has 300 seats, was built and consecrated on 4 December 1878. The architect J. Faye made the designs for the building. The church was built to replace the old stave church which stood from around the year 1200 until it was torn down in 1878.[1][2][3]
