All Creation Sings is the blog of Gareth Hill, a Methodist Minister based in Romsey in the Southampton District of the British Methodist Church. He has pastoral charge of six churches: Romsey, Cadnam, Wellow, Landford, Canada Common and Nomansland. They form part of the Winchester, Eastleigh & Romsey Circuit.
Previously, Gareth has worked as Head of Mission and Advocacy in the church’s London-based staff and a pioneer minister on the Roseland Peninsula, just outside Truro. As the minister of a number of chapels in the north of Cornwall he also pioneered the Tubestation surf church, which grew from five members to more than 300 – complete with an indoor skate ramp.
Gareth is a former newspaper editor and an award-winning hymnwriter. He comes from the Pontypool area of South Wales and is as passionate about being Welsh as he is about being a follower of Jesus Christ – or should that really be the other way round?
Gareth has been married to Joy for 38 years and they have two children. Sian is married to Damien and they have a daughter Cerys and a son Joshua. Andrew is married to Rose and they have two boys, Rhys and Matthew, and a daughter, Bethany.
