Fet Church (Norwegian: Fet kyrkje) is a parish church in Luster Municipality in Sogn og Fjordane county, Norway. It is located in the village of Fet in the Indre Hafslo area. The church is part of the Fet og Joranger parish in the Indre Sogn deanery in the Diocese of Bjørgvin. The white, wooden church, which has 220 seats, was built in 1894 by the master builder John Alver. The church was consecrated on 12 November 1894 by Bishop Frederick Waldemar Hvoslef.

From the hill where Fet Church is located, it is not long way away to the neighboring Joranger Church. Historians have often wondered why these two churches were built in the Middle Ages so close together. Jon Laberg, the author of the old local history book for Hafslo discussed the reason that Fet and Joranger each have their own churches, even though these farms lie near to each other. Laberg thinks that the owners of these farms could not reach agreement on a common church, so they each built their own church. Today, these two churches belong to the same parish.
