Premier marks 25 years of media ministry

by Marcus Jones

Premier Christian Communications, which publishes as well as broadcasting Premier Christian Radio, is celebrating its 25th birthday. 

Launched as a small London-based Christian radio station on 10 June 1995, the group now runs three radio stations, publishes three magazines, and runs Lifeline, the national Christian helpline. 

While facing challenges brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, online listenership to radio stations is up by 30 per cent, while calls answered by volunteers on Premier Lifeline are up by 50 per cent. 

Premier's CEO Peter Kerridge said: "I believe that more than ever before, Premier exists for 'such a time as this' and needs to trust God for courage and direction. We have continued to be a voice of hope to our nation through our unique mix of media ministries. 

"Our aim is to enable people to put their faith at the heart of daily life and to bring Christ to their communities. This is made possible by the heartfelt prayers and generous gifts which have sustained Premier for a quarter of a century. Thank you so much!"

A Monthly Gift Of £8 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the UK is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of £8 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
