No. 531 - Summerhill Baptist Church

Summerhill is a suburb of Launceston lying southeast of the city centre and which stretches to the banks of the South Esk River. For a time the area was called Summerdale and this name is reflected in the name of the Summerdale Primary School which stands opposite the Baptist Church.

Although established in 1959, the Summerhill Baptist Church’s roots go back to the 1870’s as the Summerhill Christian Mission Church which was associated with Henry Reed’s Mission Church located on Wellington Street.

The Summerhill Christian Mission Church will form the subject of a separate article in the near future.
