Grønning Church or Ytre Eidsfjord Church (Norwegian: Grønning kirke / Ytre Eidsfjord kirke) is a parish church in the municipality of Hadsel in Nordland county, Norway. It is located in the tiny village of Grønning along the Eidsfjorden on the island of Langøya. The church is part of the Ytre Eidsfjord parish in the Vesterålen deanery in the Diocese of Sør-Hålogaland. The white wooden church was built to seat about 220 people.
The first church built on this site was completed in 1882, but that church burned down in 1935. The present building was constructed in 1968 out of the materials from an old school.
