Ace Gladiator
TV ‘Gladiator’ coming to Attleborough Church 

Warren Furman was a major TV star in the 90’s, known to many as Ace from Gladiators but the celebrity lifestyle was not what it seemed.  Warren is coming to Attleborough in October to share the secrets of the celebrity lifestyle and also his faith. 


Warren explains ‘We just used to make up a pack of lies and sell it to a newspaper. Although it looked like a live show we filmed the whole series in one month, two shows a day, we’d pick up injuries quite quickly.  There was rivalry, if you lost the game the pressure was on you…. Show business started to corrupt me, because I saw that with the money came power’.
Ace went on an incredible journey from humble beginnings on a council estate with a dad who worked as a roof tiler to prime time Saturday television and then back down to earth again with a thud.  He went on a spiritual search and ended up doing an alpha course and his life and marriage was radically changed. 
Ace is coming to Attleborough for a special evening hosted by Christ Community Church and held at Connaught Hall on October 2.

The evening is taking place at 7pm and will include a free two course meal and an introduction to alpha. To book a place call 01953 452865.

The event is hosted by Christ Community Church who can be found at  Christ Community Church is a Christian Church.  It is made up of ordinary, local people who are learning more about the difference that Jesus makes to their lives. It meets on Sundays at 10.30am at Attleborough Junior School
