A stained glass window commemorates the Reverend Henry Bath who was a minister of the church from 1884 - 1887 and a Methodist minister for more than 57 years. 

Steps are being taken to perpetuate the memory of the late Rev. Henry Bath, by the erection of a memorial window in Wesley Church. The late Rev. Henry Bath was for more than fifty-seven years a Methodist minister. He was regarded as a "Prince of Preachers," and all his great gifts were freely given to his Church. The promoters of this movement request those in sympathy, to kindly forward donations as early as possible, to Mr. H. E. Whitehead, 238 Collins street, Melbourne.
