Brunswick Baptist Church
|Brunswick Baptist Church|
|Location||491 Sydney Road, Brunswick, Victoria 3056|
|Style||Gothic Revival architecture|
The congregation was started in 1859 by Geo Burton and John Wallis, who were parishioners of the former Sydney Road Methodist Church (whose building now houses the Sydney Road Community School). As a result, the Baptist Church has been present on this site since 1862. However, the church building was only built in 1889. Indeed, the foundation stone was laid on May 30, 1889.
The organ was built by Gray and Davison, and it was originally meant for St Pancras Old Church in central London. It was installed in this church in 1929 by Frederick Taylor, when it was donated to the church by Frederick William Biggs.
The current pastor is Mark Payne.
