Årdal Church (Norwegian: Årdal kirke) is a parish church in Hjelmeland municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. It is located in the village of Årdal. The church is part of the Årdal parish in the Ryfylke deanery in the Diocese of Stavanger. The white, wooden church was built in 1919 by the architect Einar Halleland. The church, which seats about 250 people, was built to replace the Old Årdal Church which is located nearby. Since it is the "new" church, it is also known as the Årdal nye kirke (New Årdal Church).[1][2]
