The Aberdeen Street Baptist Church, Newtown is a member of the Baptist Union of Victoria. "The (present) Baptist Church was constructed on donated land in Aberdeen Street, Newtown in 1876, to provide the growing congregation with a larger building than the existing adjacent sandstone church which had been built in 1854. The need for a larger church reflected the growth and strength of the Baptist congregation in Geelong in the nineteenth century. The first church building was converted to a Sunday School at this time." (Extract - https://vhd.heritagecouncil.vic.gov.au/places/877).
