The Congregational Church of Belmont, United Church of Christ, has long stood for justice and equality for the LGBTQ community. Today we stand in grief and solidarity with all who condemn the hatred and violence that took the lives of our brothers and sisters in the terrible and senseless attack at Pulse in Orlando, Fla.
~ Rev. Kristi Denham, pastor

Welcome to Our Church Family!
We invite you to come worship with us and see how we do church. You'll find a pastor who doesn't stay put in the pulpit, but likes to preach from the aisle.
You'll find people who love to sing and do so with gusto, accompanied by guitar or piano, or a pipe organ built and tended by a member of our congregation. You'll find a special time for children that includes a ringing of bells, so we can listen to God in the silence that follows. You'll find flowers and beauty in our historic building.
In our church, you will find ideas to stimulate your thinking and surprising new understandings that can come from reaching deep into the history and mystery of the scriptures.
We are an Open and Affirming Congregaton of the United Church of Christ. For information on the United Church of Christ, click the links below.
