The church was first recorded in 1222 when the first known vicar, William de Wudetone, was inducted. He was presented by Nicholas de Verdun, Lord of the Manor, who held the patronage of the church at Belton. There was undoubtedly an earlier church on the site. The present church architecture dates from the 13-15th centuries.

The church building has many interesting features: the medieval oak rood screen, Roesia de Verdun’s tomb, 15th century roof timbers, carved angels ‘holding up’ the roof beams, and an 18th century chest. There is an interesting lead engraving of a naked man wearing a top hat, that up until quite recently was hidden away on the church roof. It is now on display for all to see in the church tower.

We have a clergy team of two who work across the benefice of 6 local village churches. We meet for worship in church and online; on Sundays and during the week. Click here for more details.

The church is also open for Weddings, Funerals and Baptisms. Belton is part of a benefice of six churches and seek to serve our villages in friendship, fellowship and with faith. 

All are Welcome
