Eid Church (Norwegian: Eid kyrkje) is a parish church in Kvinnherad municipality in Hordaland county, Norway. It is located in the village of Eidsvik. The church is part of the Eid og Fjelberg parish in the Sunnhordland deanery in the Diocese of Bjørgvin.

History

There has been a church at Eidsvik since the Middle Ages due to its proximity to the Halsnøy Abbey. A new church was built in 1668 and that church was in use until 1824 when it was torn down to build the current church. The present white, wooden church was built in 1824 and it was consecrated the same year by the Bishop Jacob Neumann. The church seats about 180 people. The present church has been renovated twice: in 1891-1893 and again in 1952-1953.
