About Rev. Bill Crews

Named as one of Australia’s 100 most influential people and awarded the Ernst & Young Social Entrepreneur of the Year Award, Rev. Crews strives for a better world.

The thing I like about Bill Crews is that he comes at issues from unorthodox perspectives. He is constantly trying to understand fellow human beings. Not to condemn them. He challenges us to hear  the variety of humanity and to walk for a time in other people’s  shoes. This is what helps build a better and kinder society.

Former High Court justice

Bill Crews is an unpolished gem, an unpretentious Man of God who gives all religions a good name – in fact, a  great name! Bill doesn’t just ‘talk the talk’ when it comes to charity and good works, he walks the journey too, with his sleeves rolled up and sweat on his brow. His tireless work and commitment to the disadvantaged is a stark lesson to everyone of us. He  proves that ‘ the power of one’ can and does make a difference.

Even people who don’t believe in saints call Bill Crews a saint. A unique influence on the life of Sydney, Bill’s ministry has served the marginalised members of our society – the poor, the hungry, the dispossessed – and his example has encouraged the rest of us to respond to their needs.

Two real life stories from my spending one day in the slums of Cambodia 3 Mar, 2016by Bill Crews -

A mother had to get herself deeply into debt to get her husband out of gaol. He had been trafficked  and escaped and ended up being gaoled. Now her husband could no longer work as he had been injured  in escaping the traffickers. So she was in a really bad situation. They were in real debt and had to live off her meagre part time wages. A child trafficker offered her $2,000 for her two little daughters (they were very young, indeed). She refused. What horrified her was that for a split second she saw a way out. She said that she’d never give them away, she loved them so much and feels so bad about that split second of temptation the money opened up in her. Read More
