Dear Father and Friends
Exciting new radio station for Catholics and opportunities for training and development
This year we’re working hard to grow our mission by expanding both our listener base and our team [who are all un-paid volunteers].
I wonder if you, or anyone of your parish, might like to become involved. The Radio is always looking for enthusiastic people to help make programmes, techies to operate the radio and administrators to hold it all together. Much can be done over the internet, so volunteers don’t have to live near Guildford – we have volunteers in 10 dioceses and overseas! You can get further information at http://www.heavensroadfm.com/vols/ .
Heaven’s Road fm Catholic Radio was launched in November. You can read more about us here http://www.heavensroadfm.com/about-us/. The Radio broadcasts 24/7 a wide range of prayers, music, poems and features including:
● Did you hear a calling? People tell their own faith stories
● Poetry Corner
● Highlights of Catholic Charities
● Island of Saints – an insight into English Saints
● Music – showcasing Catholic talent from Gregorian Chant to Catholic Rap
● Seventh Heaven – our own take on Desert Island Discs
● Lots of other exciting topics
The website also has 200+ programmes available as podcasts for you to listen to as well. In the near future, we hope to be able to provide live Masses.
The new internet radio is being run entirely by volunteers and the majority of the programmes are original and produced by the volunteers themselves. We’re very keen to hear from any enthusiastic volunteers who would like to get involved with broadcasting either in as a programme maker, in a background role, or on the more technical production/broadcast side. We provide training and support so previous experience is not necessary.

To learn more call 0795 021 8322 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The radio is run on a shoestring by unpaid volunteers, so any donation, however small, would be very welcome. Cheques should be made payable to Heavens Road fm and sent to the above address.
Thank you for your prayers and support
