Bjorbekk Church (Norwegian: Bjorbekk kirke) is a parish church in Arendal municipality in Aust-Agder county, Norway. It is located in the village of Bjorbekk. It is the church for the Øyestad parish which is part of the Arendal prosti (deanery) in the Diocese of Agder og Telemark. The white, wooden church was built in 1884 using designs by the architect Johan Christoff Friedrich Reuter. The church seats about 650 people. It was built to replace the centuries-old Øyestad Church which is why this church is sometimes called the "new" Øyestad Church. The church cost about 40,000 kr to construct at that time.[1][2]
