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.  

Announcement - we are now showing a Christian film/documentary on Saturday evenings!


This week........"Robber of the Cruel Streets"Robber of the Cruel Streets

Back by popular demand.....George Muller (1805-1898) was a German playboy who found Christ and then gave his life to serve Christ unreservedly.  His mission was to rescue orphans from the wretched street life that enslaved so many children in England during the time of Charles Dickens and Oliver Twist.  Muller did rescue, care for, feed and educate such chiuldren by the thousands.  The costs were enormous for such a great work.  Yet amazingly, he never asked anyone for money.  Instead he prayed, and his children never missed a meal.
