Rev. Peter Crocker

Peter was born (1956) and brought up in Bristol, educated at Bristol Cathedral School where he was confirmed. His first career was in medicine, eventually spending some twenty years in General Practice. The call to be a priest came during this time and initially he served as a self supporting curate in the parish of Bassaleg. In 2000 Peter took up the full-time post of Team Vicar in the Rectorial Benefice of Bassaleg, retiring from medical practice.

In September 2006 he was licensed as priest in charge of the then parishes of Bedwas with Rudry. October 2007 saw the creation of the benefice of Bedwas with Machen with Rudry and Peter’s induction as Incumbent. In September 2014 the parish of Michaelston-y-Fedw was added to the benefice as part of the transition to forming a Ministry Area.

Technically Peter is Rector of the parishes of Machen, of Bedwas and of Michaelston and Vicar of the parish of Rudry.
