History and Architecture:

An Historical Board in front of the Church reads,

Thomas Llewellyn, a Baptist Evangelist, pionered the New England Baptist cause between 1877 and 1883. In 1880 he reported to the Baptist Union of NSW that a 'Sabbath School was conducted in Mr Enos Scott's home at Black Mountain'.
Throughout the last 2 decades of the 19th Century the Bell, Hutton, Wotten, Collins, Pleffer and Thorpe families along with others, formed the core of the Baptist community at Black Mountain. Baptist services were conducted in the Protestant Hall and various homesteads until 1902.
In 1891 Mr G. Wood of Kiama donated an acre of land at Black Mountain for a church and manse. The manse was built in 1892. The church, named 'The Black Mountain Baptist Tabernacle' was formally opened on 27 April 1902. The manse was constructed by voluntary labour and the church construction was aided by the arduous labour of men from the church. The bricks were made from clay quarried on Sharon Collin's property, 'Rose Valley'.

The Church was opened on 27th of April 1902 and restored in 1992.
