Henry Venn (1725-1797) was an English evangelical minister and one of the founders of the Clapham Sect, an influential evangelical group within the Church of England.

Venn was well known as the author of The Compleat Duty of Man (London, 1763), a work in which he intended to supplement the teaching embodied in the anonymous Whole Duty of Man from an evangelical perspective.
