The Alpha Conference in Kuching was held from the 16-04-2010 to the 17-04-2010. It was a conference attended by approximately 1400 participants from all over the Region. There were participants from India and even from the Sychelles. It was a conference that took 2 years of planning to it's fruition headed by a fellow Catholic from St. Joseph's Cathedral Kuching. In his opening address ArchBishop John Ha, it was an invitation extended six years ago to Nicky Gumbel of Alpha International. This was a conference also attended by ArchBishops, Bishops and Priests from the Catholic Church.
It was a heart warming experience to see the bigger picture of Alpha at work. For our Diocese, there were participants from Sandakan, Tawau and Lahad Datu. Monsignor Nicholas Ong from Tawau and Rev. Fr. Simon Kontou of Lahad Datu were among the participants. There were 10 participants from Sandakan led by the Sandakan Alpha Leader Mr. Henry Solibun and the Alpha Administrator Mr. Terrence Ngui. They took the opportunity of sampling the various aspects of Alpha expericence.
