Frue Church or Hetland Church (Norwegian: Frue kirke/Hetlandskirken) is a parish church in Stavanger municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. It is located in the borough of Storhaug in the city centre. The church is part of the St. Johannes parish in the Stavanger arch-deanery in the Diocese of Stavanger. The white, wooden church was built in 1854 by the architect Hans Hansen Kaas. The church seats about 1200 people. The church was originally the main church for the old municipality of Hetland, but after it was merged into the city of Stavanger, the church has been known as Frue Church, however the old name is still in use.[1][2]
