About our opening night speaker
Simon was a policeman who had a career change & became a Criminal, then had a life change & became a Christian. After 23yrs in the Met Police, Simon left after receiving a 'not guilty' verdict on an assault charge. He then became obsessed with money & material things and was tempted into a life of crime by guys he had met in the local gym. However after being 'ripped of' by his associates for a large amount of money, he was left the lowest he had ever been in his life - facing prison or death - but God threw him a lifeline in the shape of another very violent criminal, who had turned his life around through his faith in Jesus Christ.
We believe that everyone should have the chance to explore the Christian faith, ask questions and share their point of view; wherever they are in the world.Alpha offers the opportunity to do just that – in an informal, friendly and open environment. No one can force anyone to believe anything, we've found over the years that if we're hospitable and just let guests be themselves, lives will be transformed.
What's the story
Over 29 million people have tried Alpha in 169 countries, and it's been translated into 112 different languages.Developed as a short course at HTB London, in 1990 Nicky Gumbel took over running Alpha and found that many people outside of the church wanted to explore the Christian faith. Alpha now runs in every part of the global church, including the Catholic Church, the Orthodox Church and all mainline Protestant denominations.
