Sildpollnes Church (Norwegian: Sildpollnes kirke) is a parish church in the municipality of Vågan in Nordland county, Norway. It is located on the Sildpollneset peninsula on the island of Austvågøya. The church is part of the Svolvær parish in the Lofoten deanery in the Diocese of Sør-Hålogaland. The white wooden church was built in 1891 as a bedehus and in 1961 its status was upgraded to a chapel. The church is a very popular tourist location due to its location on a peninsula in the middle of a fjord with mountains in the background. It is located very close to European route E10, so it is easy to get to and photograph it.
