St Kitts' beautiful Sandy Point was the setting for a dramatic story which changed the life of a foul mouthed slave trader named John Newton. Newton went on to pen one of the most famous and well-loved songs of all time - "Amazing Grace".
Come and discover more of this amazing story whilst visiting the Caribbean island of St Kitts (also known as St Christopher). Join an Island Tour and learn more of our history.
At the Amazing Grace Experience Visitor Center on St. Kitts, you will discover the story of John Newton and the history behind the song "Amazing Grace".
You will also learn more about the tropical island paradise - St Kitts - and hopefully be inspired to continue Newton's fight by discovering more about slavery in today's world.
The Amazing Grace Experience is currently sponsored by a UK Christian Family owned business, (Transpakship – International movers & storers) who for over forty years have business connections with St. Kitts and other Caribbean Islands.
The aim is not to place on a pedestal a white slave trader ‘John Newton’ but rather to link the hymn – Amazing Grace with the shores of St Kitts. Both locals and visitors alike can afford a visit to the new centre and understand the connection between the song and St Kitts.
The transforming change that happened in the bay of Sandy Point helped strengthen the fight against the Slave Trade through men such as William Wilberforce.
