Vinje Church (Norwegian: Vinje kirke) is a parish church in the municipality of Hemne in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. It is located in the village of Vinjeøra, just north of the European route E39. The church is part of the Vinje parish in the Orkdal deanery in the Diocese of Nidaros.[1]

The white, wooden, octagonal church building was constructed in 1820 to replace an older church that was not in good shape. The church can seat 150 on the main floor with an additional 50 seats in the balcony.[2]
