The New Plymouth Baptist Church
The New Plymouth Baptist Church stands in Gill Street, and is a wooden building with accommodation for 200 persons. It was erected in the early days of the settlement, by the Congregationalists and Baptists. In recent years a residence for the minister has been acquired in Gilbert Street. Services in connection with this denomination are held in one out station, and a church site has also been secured at Waitara.
