Today we welcome Sherry Maddock to our pastoral team. As Coordinator of Neighbourhood Engagement, Sherry will lead the church in initiatives of community engagement and ensure that Central House is a place of welcome in the neighbourhood. Sherry, Geoff and Isaac live in Central House and bring a wealth of experience and insight to their life here with us.
In 2018, we celebrate our 175th anniversary. From humble beginnings in 1843, Collins Street’s story of life and mission in the heart of Melbourne is an extraordinary one.
Through a number of events, we’ll be honouring our past, recalling our stories and celebrating our future as one of Australia’s oldest continuing Baptist communities.
On Thursday April 19, Collins Street hosted the launch of Heaven All Around Us: Discovering God in Everyday Life. Author and pastor Simon Carey Holt was joined by speakers Graeme Rutherford and Dianne Brown and storyteller Jessica Holt.
