African United Baptist Association


The African United Baptist Association of Nova Scotia was founded by Reverend Richard Preston in 1854. Reverend Preston was an escaped slave from Virginia, who arrived in Nova Scotia in 1818. This Association is the Mother Organization of nineteen Black Baptist Churches in Nova Scotia. The AUBA has a long and distinguished history in serving the Black Community throughout Nova Scotia. The AUBA has played an important part in nurturing the spirit for many Black Nova Scotians. This organization is far more than a religious organization – it has served as a centre for education opportunities, a trailblazer for social change and remains a strong voice for hundreds of black families throughout Nova Scotia.
