Lyse Chapel (Norwegian: Lyse kapell) is a small parish church in Forsand municipality in Rogaland county, Norway. It is located in the tiny village of Lysebotn, at the end of the Lysefjorden. The church is part of the Forsand parish in the Ryfylke deanery in the Diocese of Stavanger. The brown, wooden church was built in 1961 by the architects Gustav Helland and Endre Årreberg. The church, which seats about 150 people, was consecrated on 28 May 1961 by the Bishop Fridtjov Birkeli.
The church is not used often, since there are only about a dozen residents in the isolated village of Lysebotn. In 2009, the municipality tried to close and sell the chapel, but they changed their mind due to the opposition of the residents.
