As together we step into 2017, we can’t help but glance back at all that God has accomplished through our partnership of bringing a strong Christian voice to the UK in 2016.
The obvious highlight of 2016 was the victory of retaining Premier’s national digital licence. It was a hard-fought effort that went all the way to the floor of the House of Commons. But in the end, your voice was heard and Premier’s national transmission was spared!
But even more than that, God opened up the opportunity to launch a brand new station, Premier Praise, extending the reach of Premier’s Christian voice to even more people… without any additional licencing fee.
Week in, week out - through Premier Christian Radio, Premier Gospel, Premier Praise, our digital outreach or through ministries like Voice of Hope - millions of people are being reached with the hope of Jesus Christ and strengthened in their faith.
These are people like Chris who shared with us…
Premier encourages me more and more every day. It’s almost like I can’t live without it. My wife is not a Christian and I go to church now and again but not that much, because it’s difficult at home. So having the radio and Christian input, with Christian values and Christian music is of great benefit to me. Every day through Premier Christian Radio, God speaks to me.
Chris’ story is being repeated over and over across the UK, as God uses your support to bring hope to the hopeless, the embrace of Christ’s love to the lonely and His peace to those suffering through life’s hurts and pains.
We know that one of the keys to this kind of life transformation is the Word of God. That’s why, in 2017, Premier is launching a year-long focus on the Bible called, ‘Bring the Word to Life’. This includes a special week-long Bible conference in London, ‘London Bible Week’ that will include some of the world’s most renowned Bible teachers and worship leaders.
With only 12 percent of Christians reading their Bible weekly and 45 percent never reading their Bible, we believe it is time to inspire the Christian community across the UK to return to the life-transforming power of the Word. So as the new year dawns, lets covenant together to see Christ lifted up across the UK through a re-commitment to His Word, praying that through our partnership together, God would move powerfully through Premier to see lives changed… for eternity.
