Attleborough church host most dangerous man

Shane Taylor, formerly one of the most dangerous prisoners in the UK, is coming to Attleborough to share his story at an Alpha meal on Wednesday October 14.  

AlphaMeaningAt age 19 Shane was arrested after two attempted murders and then after a number of incidents at HMP Holme House, near Middlesbrough, he was put in segregation. The Home Office came to know him as one of the six most dangerous prisoners in the country. Ten years ago he did an Alpha Course by mistake and his life was changed.  He now works for the charity ‘Care for Ex Offenders’ and travels up and down the country sharing his story. Shane was even interviewed by GQ magazine last year.

Rob Tervet of Christ Community Church says ‘Every day we hear many examples of terrible evil and apparent hopelessness while many amazing stories of redemption remain untold. I’m so thrilled then that the people of Attleborough will have this opportunity to hear a truly remarkable story of someone coming back from a very dark place. We all need to hear these stories’

The event is hosted by Christ Community Church and will take place at Connaught Hall, Attleborough starting at 7pm on Wednesday October 14. The evening also includes a free two course meal and an introduction to the Alpha Course. To book a place call 01953 452865; more information about Christ Community Church can be found at and details on Care for Ex Offenders is available at
