Helligvær Church (Norwegian: Helligvær kirke) is a parish church in the municipality of Bodø in Nordland county, Norway. It is located in the Helligvær islands in the Vestfjorden. The church is part of the Bodin parish in the Bodø deanery in the Diocese of Sør-Hålogaland. The small wooden church was built in 1899 on the little island of Storsørøya in the middle of the Helligvær islands. It was originally a small bedehus (meeting house), but in 1908 it was consecrated as an official chapel.[1][2]
