The Baptist Union of New Zealand is an association of Baptist churches in the country of New Zealand. Several Baptists settled in New Zealand in the 1840s, but the first Baptist minister, Decimus Dolamore from Yorkshire, England, did not arrive until May 1851. Dolamore settled in Nelson and was involved in the formation of the first Baptist Church in New Zealand – Nelson Baptist Church – that same year.
