NZ Baptist Archive

Welcome to the New Zealand Baptist Archive

The Archive seeks to acquire, preserve, manage and make accessible to everyone archives collected from the family / whanau of New Zealand Baptists.

We provide a rich archival resource for better understanding the New Zealand Baptist Christian faith community, and provide a framework for exploring the collected memory of our individual, local, and national New Zealand Baptist identity.

The collection includes archives from New Zealand Baptist – churches, the Missionary Society, Union, Associations, Community Ministries, Carey Baptist College, and groups currently or formerly part of the NZ Baptist Union.
