Who's Who - Old Hills Malvern

Who’s Who in Old Hills Malvern (AKA The Parishes of Powick, Guarlford and Madresfield and Newland)

Reverend Gary Crellin is the Priest of the Parishes. He was licensed and installed (like a washing machine, his daughters claim) to these parishes in May 2018. Having served his curacy in the Redditch/Droitwich area, he is looking forward to developing his ministry with the communities in the two parishes (also known as a Benefice). Rev Gary has not been a vicar long. Please don’t let that put you off!.

Having spent 27 years in and around the NHS, he knew God was calling him to do the best “job” in the world or Kingdom. Married to Alison with three growing up daughters (Jessica, Harriet and Isabella) he lives in the parish at Colletts Green. Use the CONTACT US form to get in touch with him.
