Hellevik Chapel (Norwegian: Hellevik bedehuskapell) is a chapel in Fjaler Municipality in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. It is located in the village of Hellevik, on the southern shore of the Dalsfjorden. The chapel is part of the Fjaler parish in the Sunnfjord deanery in the Diocese of Bjørgvin. The white chapel with a red roof has 120 seats and was consecrated on 1 October 1978 by Dean Anders Myklebust. Two local men, John Brendehaug and Jonas Lone, were the architects. The chapel was built at a time when Hellevik belonged to Holmedal parish, with the parish church (Holmedal Church) on the north side of the fjord. In 1991, when the north side of Holmedal was transferred to Askvoll Municipality, Hellevik chapel remained and it was incorporated in Fjaler parish.[1][2]
