The list of churches in Møre og Romsdal is a list of the Church of Norway churches in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. The churches are all part of the Diocese of Møre, and the list is divided into seven sections, one for each deanery (prosti heaed by a provost) in the diocese. Administratively within each deanery, the churches are divided by municipalities which have their own church council (fellesråd) and then into parishes (sokn) which have their own councils (soknerådet). Each parish may have one or more congregation.[1]
