Passing Of Rev Roy Henson OAM

It is with sadness we advise that Rev Roy Henson OAM passed away last Thursday, 9th August. The funeral will be at Canberra Baptist Church at 2pm tomorrow, Wednesday, 15th August.

Roy served a number of churches in Sydney and other regions before becoming pastor at Dickson Baptist in the ACT. He then headed up the Baptist Community Services work, training long-term unemployed people, at Caloola Farm, and was the Regional Superintendent for the ACT (2002-2005).

He leaves a wife, Doreen Henson (who also received an OAM this year for their shared work and her work with youth over many years), and two daughters and son and their families. He will also be greatly missed by the Canberra Baptist congregation.
