History and Architecture:

It was on September the 8th 1858 that three dauntless Christians , Mr and Mrs Wauchope, and Mr John Heritage met in Mitcham and formed themselves into a Church. They drew up and signed a covenant which read, " We the undersigned hereby agree to unite in church fellowship having given a statement of our Christian experience in the presence of each other and having sort direction of the Lord". And so the Mitcham Baptist Church was born.
