The former Peterborough Baptist Church has closed, and the property was sold (2007?). The original church was constructed in 1883. Prior to the erection of the church building, services were conducted in the local Union Church building from 1880 (see separate entry - 5422). Due to an increasing congregation additions were made to the original building in 1893, 1899, 1911 and on the 13/11/1913 the Tennyson Hall was opened, having been constructed by the Young Men's Bible Class. About 1972 the church amalgamated with the Orroroo Baptist Church to form the Orroroo-Peterborough Baptist Circuit. It subsequently became the Orroroo & Districts Community Christian Church. More historical information/photographs of the former church/congregation are invited. Photographs uploaded 30/5/2022.
