Åsane gamle kirke (Åsane old church) is a church from 1795 in Åsane in Bergen, Hordaland county. It is located in Sauråsbakken below Saurås gård.

There has been a church in the same place as early as 1598. The stone church as we know it today was consecrated by Bishop Johan Nordahl Brun. In the 1800s, ​​several modifications were made.

The church was set on fire (of Varg Vikernes and Jørn Tunsberg) and burned down on Christmas Eve 1992. It was rebuilt as a true copy of the original stone with new wooden furniture and was reconsecrated on the 19th November 1995 by Bishop Ole Danbolt Hagesæther.
