Grimsby Baptist Church
Grimsby Baptist Church
This church was opened in 1959, whilst the hall next door in 1957, and was used for worship until the church had been completed. However, these were new premises, built to replace the old church on the corner of Burgess Street and Victoria Street, in the old centre of Grimsby. This was built at a time when the population of the town of Grimsby was expanding around the area of the new dock which had been built in the 1850ís. These people needed a spiritual life, one provided by the Baptists, as well as a number of new non-conformist chapels.

In a corridor just outside the actual church is a war memorial that was originally placed in the old church in memory of the members of the congregation who had fallen in the Great War. The black lettering stands out clearly on the white marble. A laurel wreath is the only decoration
