The Orkened Parish (Örkeneds församling) is an independent parish in the Diocese of Lund. The Orkened parish is a hilly, woodland area of 236 sqkm north of Kristianstad that is now part of Lonsboda municipality. The parish was burned in 1678 during the 1675-1679 war between Sweden and Denmark.

The Orkened Church (Örkeneds kyrka) was built in late 1788 in Lönsboda and still stands today (located at Tosthultsvägen 2, Lönsboda, Sweden)
