That there are so many encouragements and so many positive testimonies is because of your prayerful and financial support and because God’s Holy Spirit has taken our efforts, blessed, multiplied and used them to speak into the lives of so many, despite all the challenges of recent years.

‘I heard a song I remembered from my youth’

Sarah Sedgwick rediscovered her Christian faith through Premier Christian Radio. Despite being gay and initially resistant to the idea of church, she felt a consistent pull towards it. This spiritual journey led both Sarah and her partner to commit to Christ. Sarah later founded Transformed Ministries in 2019, a charity assisting people with same-sex attraction in their relationship with God.

Premier on the road

I’m an HGV lorry driver so I listen to Premier Christian Radio most days whilst I’m in the truck.

I listened to some words that pastor Judah read out on air a couple of days ago and it brought me to tears. Everything the pastor said summed me up and so as I drove up the M40 I found myself praying the prayer of re-commitment that he read out. I’ve been a believer for a very long time but I’ve also had years of drifting in and out of church.

Bringing hope direct into people’s homes

Post covid, there have been increasing challenges. Many are finding their finances have been squeezed with rising mortgage rates, and higher prices in the shops and online. Many food charities report that food banks are more needed then ever.

Local churches are needing wisdom on how to navigate an increasingly challenging cultural environment. Christianity is no longer respected in the way it once was.

Everyday Premier touches lives bringing hope and inspiration

Premier Praise is a lifeline for me.

“The worship, prayers, Bible readings and commentaries are so helpful, particularly as I am coping with depression and anxiety at the moment, and living on my own. It is like another family member.”

When the outlook is bad…

“Having Premier Praise on helps me to focus on God’s grace when I’m feeling particularly bad. As Louis Giglio from Passion City Church in Atlanta said “when the outlook is bad, try the uplook.””

Jon, Peterborough

“Premier has impacted my life in so many different ways.
They talked about the tithing, Holy communion, Easter, The resurrection of Jesus Christ etc. The sermons, the Gospel music, there is always something going on which brings me more understanding about the Great God I serve. Praise God.I really thank God for Primer Radio. ”

Our prayer is that God is the centre of all that Premier is and does.

Without the inspiration of the Holy Spirit touching our radio programmes, print and online articles it is mere words. We are so grateful that we have an army of 492 prayer supporters who stand with us and pray to God asking him to take our efforts and transform them through the power of the Holy Spirit into life-changing impacts.
