Charles Simeon Website

On January 1, 2011, http://www.charlessimeon.com, becomes the only website entirely devoted to evangelical divine, Charles Simeon.

Simeon (1759-1836) was pastor of Holy Trinity Church and a fellow of King's College Cambridge, England for 54 years.  During that time God used Simeon to introduce campus ministries to Cambridge University as well as the Evangelical revival to the Church of England.  At the cutting edge of Simeon's ministry was expository preaching.

Charlessimeon.com is an introduction to Simeon's life and legacy.  Among its pages are pictures of Simeon sites in and around Cambridge as well his rooms at King's College.  There is an extensive bibliography of works by and about Simeon as well as a video of Simeon devotee John Stott explaining the importance of his life and work.  A variety of links in the biography section are also included to offer the interested visitor a broader look at Simeon's impact on the world for Christ.
