The exact date of the establishment of a church at Broughton is not known but is believed it to be about 1100 AD. (Archive LinkExternal link ) There is no mention of a church at Broughton in Domesday Book but a list of Vicars dates from 1353 AD

The earliest building was probably wooden but there seems to have been a stone church in the fourteenth century. This was rebuilt in 1533 the date of the tower which is the oldest part now standing. The church was rebuilt again in 1826 and in 1904 the east wall was removed and the present chancel added. Other more recent additions have been the choir vestry on the south side in 1976 and a north porch in 1987.

The Church is Grade II* listed (LinkExternal link - British Listed Buildings)
