Victorian Baptist Historical Society

The Victorian Baptist Historical Society was formed on 15 July 1982 and promotes interest in and research of the history of Baptists in Victoria. Regular meetings are held to discuss aspects of Baptist history in this state. Preservation of historical records from local churches and denominational programs and agencies is maintained. Many of these records are deposited at the archives of the Baptist Union of Victoria which is housed at the BUV Offices.

The Society publishes an annual journal Our Yesterdays which features papers presented to the Society. A quarterly Newsletter records matters of Baptist historical interest and includes book reviews. The annual subscription cost is $30 per annum.
