Description

Having studied electrical engineering and building the first machine to grow ultra-pure single crystal silicon in Australia, Rev. Bill Crews followed his heart by taking on a role at Sydney's renowned Wayside Chapel, where he helped to create the country's first 24-hour Crisis Centre. In 1973 he was made a member of the New South Wales Drug and Alcohol Authority and was closely involved in establishing drug rehabilitation, education and prevention programs throughout NSW.

In 1978 Bill joined the Rev. Ted Noffs in creating the first Life Education Centre and went on to study Theology. In 1986 he was ordained as minister of the Ashfield Uniting Church, in Sydney's inner west, where he created The Exodus Foundation – now one of Sydney's largest frontline charities. He has been the recipient of countless awards, including an Order of Australia, and actively supports multi-faith dialogue and understanding between cultures. He is also a Patron of Australians For Just Refugee Programs and is Chairman of Fair Go Australia, an anti-racism project sponsored by the NSW Government. In 2011 Bill established The Bill Crews Charitable Trust, which encourages, supports, finances and develops ways of tackling poverty across three continents.

Bill is a committed supporter of FLOW International and assists in an advisory capacity.
