Sørfjorden Chapel (Norwegian: Sørfjorden kapell) is a chapel of the Church of Norway in Gildeskål Municipality in Nordland county, Norway. It is located in the village of Sørfinnset. It is an annex chapel in the Gildeskål parish which is part of the Bodø domprosti (deanery) in the Diocese of Sør-Hålogaland, although the chapel building is not owned by the parish, it is privately owned by the local residents of the Sørfjorden farms. The white, wooden chapel was built in a long church style in 1927. The chapel seats about 300 people.[1] The church is used for worship services about four times each year.

Although it was originally built as a small "bedehus" chapel in 1927, it was expanded in 1957 with a chancel and a tower. It was then consecrated as a "chapel" on 30 June 1957 by the Bishop Wollert Krohn-Hansen.[2]
