Namsos Church (Norwegian: Namsos kirke) is a parish church in the municipality of Namsos in Nord-Trøndelag county, Norway. It is located in the center of the town of Namsos, just north of the river Namsen. The church is part of the Namsos parish in the Namdal deanery in the Diocese of Nidaros. The large, rectangular, brick church was built in 1960 to replace the previous one which was bombed and burned during World War II. The church was designed by architect Ola B. Aasness and it seats about 622 people. The church also has a free-standing bell tower on the south side of the main building.[1]
