We are here to support churches and organisations with online content, training and technical help. We can also stream your content for special events, conferences and festivals, through our online radio.
Born out of the Coronavirus Era in 2020, Sunrise Radio Five played a varied range of Christian music 24 hours a day, on it's internet stream, including new artists and bands, contemporary Christian music, specialist music, as well as news and views, and great inspirational speakers.
The music is currently on pause as we consider whether or not to renew our PPL/PRS royalties licence (around £600 per year) so the radio stream is based on spoken words and open source music which we have permission to use. You can listen here - sunrisepaul.radioca.st/stream
There are always opportunities to get involved, for example through reading projects, as well as contributing your thoughts and views on a range of topics that will bring hope and encouragement to listeners everywhere.
We are a lean organisation, with very low overheads, so we can focus our resources on providing the best support where it is needed. We all have day jobs but our heart is to use our skills and resources where we can, to help churches, charities and Christian organisations flourish and seize opportunities, during these difficult times.
Regular Podcasts and Blogs, produced by the Sunrise Team and guests can be found on these pages and across most platforms.
A surprise opportunity to produce and broadcast a faith based radio show for a local community radio station in 2018, led our team to believe that local and nation radio was missing out on the demand for popular contemporary Christian music, and what was happening, with a growing number of people who wanted an expression of their beliefs and lifestyle to be part of day to day life, not confined to church buildings, one day per week.
The onset of COVID-19, March 2020 meant that church doors closed, yet the demand for spiritual and pastoral support, and radio based companionship, and essential local information, has never been higher.
New ways of "doing life" are essential for us to stay connected and support and encourage one another, so after hours of discussion and prayer, Sunrise Five was formed, and the journey towards becoming an integral part of the community began.
Every day starts with a "Sunrise", even when you can't see it, so we'd love you to connect with us, so we can start the day well, together.
