History of the building

The building dates back to 1877 when it was built at a cost of £13,500 to house the congregation of Adelaide Place Baptist Church, which had been established in 1829. In 1995, after a £1.3 million redevelopment programme, the building re-opened as Adelaides. The church's vision is to serve the city centre community and visitors through its facilities as well as maintain its presence in the city centre.
