Crown Terrace Baptist Church 2022

A Christian Community in the City Centre Seeking to Make Christ Known


Crown Terrace was formally constituted in 1839, the first Baptist Church in Aberdeen, although the church actually first began in 1821. A chapel was built in Union Terrace, but the church later moved to a new chapel in John Street which served for the next 40 years. In 1870, the church moved to the current building on Crown Terrace.

In 1939 a history of the first hundred years was produced and is available here. A further history of the 50 years from 1939 was completed and is available here. A booklet was produced in 1970 on the centenary of the building. It is also available here.
