Alice Cooper

Missionary in Tower Hamlets

“My vision is that one day there will be many Sylheti people worshipping Jesus in their own language"

Alice lived in Northwest India for two years in a church planting team reaching out to an unreached tribal group before studying Biblical and Cross-cultural studies at All Nations College.

She moved to London in September 2000 and since then has been working with the Bangladeshi (Sylheti) community, first with a church, and then from 2012 with London City Mission, where she runs ESOL classes and Discovery Bible study groups with Muslim women.

“I’ve always wanted to serve God in full time Christian ministry from when I first became a Christian on Mayhill Road in Glasgow, and especially to take the gospel to those, like the Bangladeshi people, who have no or very little opportunity to hear it.”

Alice now works as a missionary with a focus on reaching people from Islam and other religions in partnership with the church.

“Every day I see so much hopelessness and fear, especially after the isolation of Covid. I long to see people set free to live life to the full. (John 10:10)”

Alice is currently working in partnership with an Anglican church, where she has set up an ESOL class for Sylheti women who she shares a Bible story with each week. She also goes out regularly with different churches, knocking on doors within their community.

“My vision is that one day there will be many Sylheti people worshipping Jesus in their own language and sharing the gospel with their Sylheti neighbours.”

Alice is a musician. Her mum taught her the piano from the age of four and she also plays the violin. She has seven nieces and nephews in nearby Kent.
