Alta Church (Norwegian: Alta kirke) is a parish church of the Church of Norway in Alta Municipality in Troms og Finnmark county, Norway. It is located in the Bossekop area in the town of Alta. It is an annex church (formerly the main church) for the Alta parish which is part of the Alta prosti (deanery) in the Diocese of Nord-Hålogaland. The white, wooden church was built in a long church style in 1858 by the architect Stephen Henry Thomas. The church seats about 230 people. The building was consecrated by the Bishop Knud Gislesen. This church was the main church for the municipality until 2013 when the Northern Lights Cathedral was built as the new main church for the municipality and deanery.
