Robin Merrifield


Born in Birmingham, Robin subsequently spent just over 11 years in South Africa in two visits. During the last time he met Susanna at Cape Town High School and they have now been married for some 42 years. Robin began in dairy farming in South Africa and continued when he and the family came to the UK in 1980. In 1993 Robin began training for ministry at Moorlands Bible College, subsequently completed his degree in Theology with The Open Theological College and his MA with London School of Theology. Since ordination in 1995 Robin has pastored churches in Milland and Fittleworth, both in West Sussex, and Chelmsford in Essex and now serving in Derbyshire. He has had the privilege of visiting churches in Toronto, Denver, Auckland, Cape Town, Kenya and Malawi.

They have three sons scattered around the country and in their ‘spare time’ enjoy sailing, walking, gardening and visiting new places. In ministry Robin is passionate about reaching the lost, teaching the Bible, encouraging in discipleship and making the church relevant to all ages.
