Rob Bridges

Mission Associate in Croydon

"We all have a part to play in taking the good news of Jesus to all of those who have yet to hear it"

After 28 years working for the NHS, Rob felt God was telling him there was more to his Christian walk than he was experiencing.

He joined London City Mission on their Pioneer Programme in 2020 and after it finished, he successfully applied for a position as a Mission Associate working with the Homeless and Marginalised in 2022.

"The more I walk with the Lord, the more I realise that no-one is forsaken and that we all have a part to play in taking the good news of Jesus to all of those who have yet to hear it. For me, it was time to step up."

Rob currently works alongside other missionaries in the Croydon area seeking to partner with churches who either have or want to have a bigger impact on the people living in the shadows of their local communities.

Croydon is now the highest populated borough in Greater London and the needs of those that live there has also increased. As one of the first stops for refugees coming to the UK and one of the most dangerous London boroughs (MET 2022) it has a growing problem with ‘County Lines’ crime.

"I long to see local churches working together sharing resources bringing people closer to Jesus in their local communities," says Rob.

Rob is married to Emma, they have 5 children, 2 dogs and 3 cats. Rob loves American cars and making models. Emma works in Speech and Language and loves T.V. drama and crochet.
