(English:)
The early 1800s were a time of religious ferment in New Brunswick, and there are records of Baptist meeting houses in Woodstock as early as 1813. A Free Christian Baptist Church was organized here in 1834.

This Gothic Revival style building was finished in 1885, replacing a church destroyed in the great Woodstock fire of 1881. It was enlarged and modified with classical elements in 1906 following a merger of two local Baptist congregations. In 1966, lightning struck the steeple, resulting in the tower being demolished and capped in its current form.
