Fusa Church (Norwegian: Fusa kyrkje) is the main parish church in Fusa municipality in Hordaland county, Norway. It is located in the village of Fusa. The church is part of the Fusa parish in the Hardanger og Voss deanery in the Diocese of Bjørgvin. The white, concrete church was built in 1962 by the architect Ole Halvorsen. The church seats about 350 people. It is the fourth church building to be built on this site.

History

The first church on this site was built in the Middle Ages, sometime before 1325, and it probably was a stave church. The church was torn down and replaced in the year 1600. A new, larger church was built in 1861. On Sunday, 11 January 1959, shortly after the worship service, the church caught fire and burned to the ground. The church was immediately rebuilt and it was consecrated on 2 September 1962.
