Utsira Church (Norwegian: Utsira kirke) is a parish church in Utsira municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. It is located on the small island of Utsira. The church is part of the Utsira parish in the Haugaland deanery in the Diocese of Stavanger. The white, wooden church was built in 1785. It seats about 100 people. A church was first mentioned on the island in 1613. The present church is likely the second church on the site.[1][2][3]
