Alta kirke er en langkirke fra 1858 i Alta kommune, Finnmark fylke. Kirken er soknekirke i Alta sokn i Alta prosti. Byggverket er i tømmer og har 230 plasser. Arkitekt for kirken var Stephen Henry Thomas. Adkomst til stedet som er et velkjent turistmål er via E6 og E45. Kirken, som ble innviet i 1858 av biskop Knud Gislesen, er den eldste bygningen i Alta sentrum. Det første orgelet ble innviet pinsedagen 1880. I sluttfasen av andre verdenskrig ble kirken sterkt ramponert, og først julaften 1945 kunne kirken igjen tas i bruk. Den er siden utbedret flere ganger, senest i 2005/06. Alta kirke er en av få kirker som ble spart under brenningen av Finnmark under andre verdenskrig i 1944.
