It was a cool summer day in Battersea

On Saturday 10 June 1995 group of people gathered in Battersea Park, London for the official launch party of a new Christian outreach called Premier Christian Radio.

Since the mid-1980s, Christians had been working and petitioning parliament and the broadcast regulator to allow Christian broadcasting in the UK. In 1990 the law was changed to allow Christian broadcasting, and after many years of planning Premier finally took to the air.

The Christian community rallied around this station with thousands committing to provide regular monthly support.

God made the seemingly impossible possible – and the first Christian radio station made its inaugural broadcast.

Since then, through the financial support of friends like you, Premier has grown by incredible leaps and bounds…

  • In 1999, we launched Premier Online, streaming Premier to the world
  • 2006 brought about, providing Christian Internet TV on demand
  • In 2009, we began broadcasting nationwide on DAB Digital radio
  • 2010 saw the launch of Premier Gospel
  • Premier Praise launched in 2016
  • And today, Premier is the largest Christian Media organisation in the UK, reaching to people via our print, digital and radio platforms.
