L’Église de la rue Belliard was a Brussels-based evangelical Protestant congregation, started in 1837 when a group left the Temple de l'Observatoire Protestant church.[1]

L’Église de la rue Belliard originally met on rue du Jeu de paume under pastor Denis Lourde-Laplace, then on 24 rue Ducale under the ministry of pastor Edouard Panchaud (1839–1862). In 1851 the congregation built an Evangelical Chapel on 13 rue Belliard in the new Leopold quarter in Brussels.[2]

Over the years L’Église de la rue Belliard and the Temple de l'Observatoire divided and rejoined several times before finally reuniting in 1973 to become L’Église Protestante Bruxelles-Botanique.

The church building on rue Belliard was sold in 1974 and a new building on boulevard Bisschoffsheim dedicated in 1977.
