Christians In Action UK

Pastor Freddie Roberson

(Director, C in A UK)

Freddie Roberson was raised and educated in the Los Angeles area and met his wife Wanda in high school. Freddie spent two years at California State University of Long Beach and then left university to train as a missionary at Christians in Action in Long Beach California. Freddie and Wanda were married in January 1980 moved to London, England in April of the same year. 

They both began working among young people in three areas - Thornton Heath, Addiscombe and Brixton - during their first 4 years in Britain. Freddie also led the UK Christians in Action missionary training college after two years. In 1986 Freddie became the director of the overall ministry of C in A UK and became the senior leader of the C in A church in 1991.


During his years of service, Freddie has been a very popular public speaker and motivator, particularly among churches in Croydon and parts of South London. He has also been a keynote speaker for many youth events, dealing with subjects such as dating, sex, marriage and peer pressure.


In 2009 Freddie was appointed Area Director for Europe, India and for the new field of Pakistan. After hosting a strategic European conference he made his first extensive trip to Pakistan and India, during a very dangerous and difficult period (2010) in which terrorism has significantly increased in the region. He has also travelled to most western European nations, has strong connections in N. Ireland and has ministered in Sierra Leone both before the recent war and not long after the end of the conflict. Much of his financial support is used to offset his travel and mission projects.


He is a highly motivated man who has impacted many in Croydon and beyond in a positive way. Freddie and Wanda have been married since 1980 and have two adult children.
