The original Surbiton Hill Baptist Church was opened ca. 1874, the ceremony was performed by Rev. C. H. Spurgeon. The name of the church was changed to Oaklands Baptist Church fairly soon after opening. A small group of worshippers broke away from the Oaklands Baptist Church ca. 1898 and formed the Balaclava Road Baptist Church.
In year 2000 the two churches reunited under the title "Baptist Together in Surbition". In 2010 the reunited churches were renamed "Surbiton New Life Baptist Church". Both building is still in use by the Baptist Church.
