Acomb Baptist Church stands on the eastern side of the Ridgeway, opposite Barkston Avenue. The church began life as a wooden hut, which was opened on a patch of grass on the site in 1960 when ministers at York Baptist Church realised the need for local services in the rapidly expanding suburb. Initially, baptisms were conducted outside in the open. Following modest extensions, the decision was made to erect the present building, which opened in 1969. [The History Files]
