Byneset Church (Norwegian: Byneset kirke) is a medieval church in the Byneset area of the city of Trondheim in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. The church was consecrated to the saint Michael. The year consecration is not exactly known, but it is assumed that it was about 1180. The same mason signatures are also found at the Nidaros Cathedral, indicating that the same masons were used in the construction of both churches.

The church is part of the Byneset parish in the Heimdal deanery in the Diocese of Nidaros.

Church building

The church is built in a Romanesque style and it is a stone "long church". The tower was built around 1650. In 1656, a "weapon house" was constructed in front of the west gate. It was renovated in 1811 and again in the 1970s. ||| Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.5
