London residents now have a brand-new radio choice, a station unashamedly sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.
Following months of planning, preparation, and testing, Adventist Radio London (ARL) finally went live on Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) on Sunday 8 April with a 'Sunday Breakfast' show hosted by two of its millennial presenters, Lynette Allcock and Sam Gungaloo.
In anticipation of going live, on April 7, 2018, the 1,000 plus capacity Brixton Seventh-day Adventist Church hosted a special dedication service and a special time of prayer. The service attracted visitors from across London including guests, Richard Daly from the British Union Conference who offered prayers for the radio team. Victor Hulbert, from the Trans-European Division, who prayed for the equipment, and Ray Allen, newly elected vice-president for Adventist World Radio, who prayed for the radio programming.
ARL Director Michael Hamilton emphasized that the purpose of the radio station is to “share the everlasting gospel commissioned to this church with the multi-cultural population of London, with emphasis on Millennials, empowering them to make Christ their choice.”
