Meeting House Certificates issued by Wiltshire Quarter Sessions under the requirements of the Toleration Act 1689 show that there was Baptist activity in Winterslow at least from 1749 when the ‘house of John Hooker’ was granted a certificate for worship.

The galvanized iron building which stands in West Winterslow as Winterslow Baptist Church was built in 1908 at a cost of £125. Its construction was the result of a plan by the Baptist churches of Salisbury, Wallop, Lockerley, Mottisfont and Broughton that a chapel should be built on a donated piece of land in Winterslow.

The church was extended in 1980 by the construction of a hall onto the rear of the building. On 17th April 2008 the church celebrated its centenary.
