The nave and chancel of Godsted Church were built in the 13th century and the porch was added later. The Romanesque font is made of granite and is probably as old as the church. The pulpit dates from c. 1625 and altarpiece from 1825.

Godsted Church is mostly reminiscent of a small honeycomb church with pink glaze and white lace. The exact age of the Church cannot be established, but it is believed that it dates from 1150-1300 - that is, the time of the great church buildings throughout the country. A population that probably spoke less than half a million souls built over 2,000 churches in less than two hundred years. One of these was Godsted Church.

En flot lille lyserød kalket landsbykirke, som er bygget i perioden 1150-1300. Klokken er ophængt i en lille tagkvist med luger. Tidligere har den haft en klokkestabel. Kirken ligger i den lille landsby Godsted midt mellem voldstedet Ålevad og hovedgården Ulriksdal, som begge i middelalderen tilhørte biskoppen over Fyens Stift.
