Flakstad Church (Norwegian: Flakstad kirke) is a parish church in the municipality of Flakstad in Nordland county, Norway. It is located in the village of Flakstad. The church is part of the Flakstad parish in the Lofoten deanery in the Diocese of Sør-Hålogaland. The red, wooden church was built in 1780.
The long, low church building is a cog-jointed construction using timbers clad externally with red-painted wooden paneling, as was usual at the end of the eighteenth century. The small-paned windows have white frames. The roof is covered with tiles and a ridge turret with an onion dome and spire crowns the intersection of the cross arms.
