The original Particular Baptist Church opened 1873, the congregation having previously met in private houses and at the Preston Street schoolroom. Destroyed by bombing 16 April 1941 (the minister and one other person being killed). The new church at the junction of Abbey Road and Park Drive opened in 1958.
Dissension in the new Abbey Road Baptist Church in Barrow led to the appearance of a breakaway group around August 1882 which formed a separate meeting in the upper room at the Co-operative Buildings, Abbey Road [this split lasted until September 1883]. About June 1883 there was a second secession, and 65 members of the parent church followed the Rev. James Hughes [the original minister], who held services first in the original meeting room in Paradise Street and afterwards in the Central Hall, Dalkeith Street, where he had good congregations. The schism lasted for several years, but was apparently healed by mid 1890s.
Central Hall, Dalkeith Street was a public hall erected by private enterprise in 1870s and was used additionally by many other organisations. The first Abbey Road church was located The Dalkeith St church was located
