Welcome to Firstlight Broadcasting Network
See below for details about new programs that are now being aired on Firstlight!

The Firstlight channel is broadcasting nationally 24/7 via the Freeview|HD (UHF terrestrial) network on Channel 26.

Firstlight is run by a team of dedicated volunteers with the common mission to proclaim God's love throughout New Zealand. Firstlight aims to broadcast the best selection of ground-breaking Christian programs sourced from 3ABN, Amazing Facts, It Is Written and other international and local sources as they become available.

While our programs are based on Christian principles, we believe the program topics will be of great interest to the general public and not just limited to a Christian audience.

Please continue to help us with your prayers and with your financial support.  We cannot keep your favourite Firstlight channel up on air without YOUR ongoing support!

Check out this week's Program Schedule to see what is showing and what is coming up on Firstlight.  


Some time ago we used to show a documentary film or a Christian flim on a Sunday evening.  We received helpful feedback that folk would prefer this to be scheduled on a Saturday evening as a late night on Sunday isn't good for those needing to rise early for work on a Monday.  With this in mind, we are now going to show a documentary or a suitable Christian film on Saturday nights, starting this Saturday at 7:30pm with the award winning documentary called "Captivated" - see below for further info about this film.

A special item is being aired this week!

This will be screened as follows:
Saturday night - 27th June at 7:30pm
Wednesday arvo - 1st July at 1pm
Friday early morning - 3rd July at 1am


Most of us would agree that we are a media-saturated society.  What effect is all this media having on us individually and culturally?  This documentary raises concerns about our culture's unchecked enthusiasm for media consumption.  Even if you are not media-addicted, you should watch this movie.  Gather your children and your grandchildren to watch it with you.
See the trailer here.

By the way...if you watch this and decide that you would like to purchase the DVD to share with others it is available from the good folk at Autumn Leaves.
