Who we are

Our Vision

The ministry of Christians in Action began in 1965, when Elgin & Dorothy Taylor came to London after serving in Japan and Nigeria. God put it in their hearts to develop a training centre in which Christians could be prepared and sent to different parts of the world. It was through their evangelism efforts and emphasis on ministering to all peoples and nations that the church was founded. God’s vision for us can be summed up in Isaiah 25:6-8, which reads:

Here on Mount Zion the LORD Almighty will prepare a banquet for all the nations of the world---a banquet of the richest food and the finest wine. Here he will suddenly remove the cloud of sorrow that has been hanging over all the nations. The Sovereign LORD will destroy death forever! He will wipe away the tears from everyone's eyes and take away the disgrace his people have suffered throughout the world. The LORD himself has spoken.

Isaiah 25: 6-8 (GNB)

In this passage 3 phrases are keys to the vision of C in A: “... prepare a banquet for all the nations of the world...”, “…remove the cloud of sorrow that has been hanging over all the nations...” and “...wipe away the tears from everyone's eyes…”. We believe that our church is to become a place where people of many cultures and nations can be brought out of darkness and built up through sound teaching and strong personal relationships. We desire our church to be a place of security and safety where people can come to be nurtured and fed from God’s word. If you can picture in your mind a large mountain where people can come up to and be saved from destructive floodwaters, valleys filled with thieves and robbers, and low clouds that prevent individuals from seeing the way forward, then you have a picture of our fellowship.

Building people!

Our first aim is to be a church that continues to build up people and develops strong personal relationships. We want people from various ethnic groups within our community to feel welcomed and accepted, and for every member to receive teaching and personal spiritual help from God’s word. We aim to have small groups meeting regularly in various parts of town, so that friendships are developed as members reach out to family and friends.

Serving community!

We also recognise that our congregation is only a small part of the wider church in our community. We therefore aim to work together with other believers to establish the God’s kingdom in our city. We also want to affect our community for good, so we seek to develop social projects that serve our neighbourhoods.

Reaching nations!

Finally, we aim to do our share of extending God’s kingdom by building through missions. For us this means supporting mission by encouraging existing mission projects, sponsoring the training of national leaders when invited, and giving financial assistance. We also aim to send workers on both short and long-term mission projects.

History of Christians in Action Evangelical Church Croydon Greater London

Our Church: The hub of our community.

A Brief History of Christians in Action Church

“Christians in Action” came to Britain in 1965, brought by a converted Marine, Elgin Taylor by name, who had previously seen Missionary Service in Japan.

Accompanied by his wife Dorothy and their children, he began life here in a Brixton one-room bed sitter made available by a Christian lady whose own faithfulness in the service of the Lord has been a means of blessing to many.

Elgin was the pastor of the church until 1979. To learn more about the Taylor’s remarkable story, have a look at their interview on our website.

Significant dates:

1968 – It was in an old building in Addiscombe called Clyde Hall that the church found its first place to worship and where Christians in Action church was officially opened. It was cold, dark, and in need of a good clean-up each Sunday morning, but our people brought life to the place each week with vibrant worship and the ministry of the word.

1970 – A former doctor’s surgery was purchased at 67 Melfort Road, which became the centre of our evangelism and missionary training. From this location workers have been sent to N. Ireland, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, India and Sierra Leone. It is currently the home of our offices and hub of various ministries and continues to provide temporary accommodation for Christian workers both home and abroad.

1979 – This was the year that Christians in Action was finally able to purchase its own church building in Addiscombe. Sadly, it was also the very same year that our founders Elgin and Dorothy Taylor were led of God to return to the United States to take up a new challenge. Elgin became first African-American leader of a mission society as he eventually took on the role of President of Christians in Action Missions International in California.

1980 – This was the beginning of period of leadership transition. The church and mission were led by Pastors Tom Hodges, Dale Simpson and Les Leeder.

1986 – Freddie Roberson became the UK Director of Christians in Action UK and was responsible for the overall direction of the ministry.

1991 – Was when Freddie Roberson became pastor of the church. He and his wife Wanda were raised in southern California and came to serve in London in 1980 after training at Christians in Action’s bible college, located then in Long Beach California. He served in the church and in the C in A Bible College in Thornton Heath before becoming the senior pastor. His leadership continues to the present day.

2005 – Christians is Action UK celebrated its 40th anniversary and began to experience accelerated growth in the church ministry. That year 13 were baptised and three new elders (Matthew David, Roger Sancho and Tex Trim) were commissioned.

2009 – Christians in Action church welcomes True Vine Church to share its premises. This is an amazing act of unity and causes both churches to progress significantly.

2010 – Freddie Roberson made his first trip to Pakistan and continued to India as the vision for missions continues.   Edit

Grant me prudently to avoid him that flatters me, and to endure patiently him that contradicts me
