Map of the church deaneries in Hordaland county:
  Bergen domprosti
  Arna og Åsane prosti
  Fana prosti
  Hardanger og Voss prosti
  Nordhordland prosti
  Sunnhordland prosti
  Vesthordland prosti

This list of churches in Hordaland is a list of the Church of Norway churches in Hordaland county, Norway. The churches are all part of the Diocese of Bjørgvin along with the churches in Sogn og Fjordane county. The diocese is based at the Bergen Cathedral in the city of Bergen.

The list is divided into seven sections, one for each deanery (prosti) in the county. One deanery (Nordhordland) overlaps into Sogn og Fjordane county to the north. Administratively within each deanery, the churches are divided by municipalities which have their own church councils (fellesråd). Each municipal church council may be made up of more than one parish (sokn), each of which may have its own council (sokneråd). Each parish may have one or more congregations in it. The city-municipality of Bergen is a special case. It has a large population, so the central part of the city is its own deanery. The northeastern part of the city is part of the Arna og Åsane deanery, and the southwestern part of the city is part of the Fana deanery.[1]

Historically, Hordaland has had up to 9 deaneries, but the number of deaneries has been reduced in recent years. In 2013, the old Laksevåg deanery in Bergen was dissolved and its churches were divided between the Bergen deanery and the Fana deanery. In 2014, the Midhordland deanery was dissolved and its churches were divided between the deaneries of Fana, Hardanger og Voss.[2][3] Also in 2014, the parishes in nearby Osterøy Municipality were transferred from Nordhordland to the Arna and Åsane deanery.[4] Its name could have been changed to "Arna, Åsane and Osterøy deanery" but that was considered to be too long a name. In 2015, the Norwegian Department of Culture changed the name to Åsane deanery.[5]

Bergen domprosti

This arch-deanery covers the central part of the city of Bergen in Hordaland county. The deanery is headquartered in the city of Bergen in Bergen municipality. Parts of the old Laksevåg deanery (which was dissolved in 2013) were moved into this deanery.[2]
