Welbeck Street Baptist Church
Welbeck Street Baptist Church
The first Baptist chapel in Ashton opened on Hodgson Street in 1848. By the 1960s the old church, following two fires in the 1950s had become very dilapidated. A new site, at the junction of Welbeck Street South and Brook Street East was purchased, and compensation from the council enabled the church to demolish the old building and begin work on the new one. The work was completed by July 1965, with the first service taking place on September 19th. In September 2010, Ayi Samson Ake from Ivory Coast became their new Lay Pastor.
