Hen Church (Norwegian: Hen kyrkje) is a parish church in Rauma Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. It is located in the village of Isfjorden. It is about 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) east of the town of Åndalsnes. The church is part of the Hen parish in the Indre Romsdal deanery in the Diocese of Møre.

There has been a church in this village for centuries. There are some artifacts from the church dating back to the 13th century that are now at the Romsdal Museum. The present church was built out of granite in 1831 on the site of an older church that had been razed. The white stone church has an onion dome on top of a central tower on the roof. The current pulpit is from the 1930s and the altarpiece from 1831.
