The Saint John the Baptist's Church[1] (Norwegian: St. Johannes Døperen kirke) is the name given to a religious building of the Catholic Church, which functions as the parish church in Sandefjord, Norway.[2]

The building was built between 1916 and 1918 in the Art Nouveau style for the Methodists and was inaugurated on 5 March 1918. The church building served as a Protestant parish for the Methodists in the city for 90 years, but was sold to the Catholic Church in 2008. The building has a built surface of 235 m² and has space for between 140 and 150 seats. On the ground floor there is also a hall for the parish on a plot of 652 m².[citation needed]
