Welcome to Firstlight Broadcasting Network

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.

Program Schedule

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



Join us this week for the firework celebrations on Firstlight as we mark the completion of our SECOND year on air!! 

Firstlight was launched at 6pm on the 17th September 2012.  It is amazing how quickly the time has flown!  Thank you to all of you for your prayers and your financial support - both of which have kept Firstlight going.  We know that God is using Firstlight to touch the hearts and minds of many people here in New Zealand.  We receive both emails and letters daily from those who find Firstlight a blessing.

School holiday programs
From the 28th September to the 11th October we are running more children's programs as we know that our young viewers are on school holidays.  Mums and Dads, please see our Program Schedule for details as to what will be on and when.  We have tended to group these around the usual children's times on Firstlight (7:30-8:00am and 4:00-4:30pm) but have also added a few extra days and some longer timeslots so that we can air the delightful "To All The World" programs.  There are also four new "Happy Kid's Cooking" programs to enjoy and further good news is that some brand new children's programs are in the pipeline!  Yay!
