At the recent gathering of Victorian Baptists, three members of Collins Street were among those honoured for their distinguished service to the churches of our state.
It is now 40 years since Rev Bruce Tudball was ordained to the Baptist ministry and his contribution to the churches and agencies of the BUV was acknowledged.
Also celebrating 40 years of ministry, Rev Dr Marita Munro was the first woman to be ordained in Australia. Now Professor of Baptist Studies at Whitley College, Marita continues to invest in our movement.
And celebrating an extraordinary 60 years since his ordination to ministry, Rev Len Lewis was honoured for his faithful service across two states, concluding here at Collins Street in 2011.
