Welcome to Firstlight Broadcasting Network

Firstlight - Changing Lives

More About Firstlight...

The Firstlight channel broadcasts nationally 24/7 via the Freeview|HD (UHF terrestrial) network on Channel 26, via Freeview Satellite (also on Channel 26) and on SKY (Channel 206).  The official launch onto the satellite platform took place on Saturday 17th September 2016 at 6pm; at this same time Firstlight celebrated its FOURTH birthday of bringing God's loving last day messages to the people of New Zealand.

Firstlight is run by a team of dedicated volunteers whose mission is 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 New Zealand 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. 

We show a Christian film/documentary or an important interview on Saturday evenings at 7:30pm.  This is usually repeated at 12 noon on the Wednesday following.
See below for some of the highlights for the week ahead on Firstlight.

This Week's Special Program:


John Wesley

A film about the remarkable John Wesley who lived from 1703 to 1791 and who is credited with the foundation of the evangelical movement known as Methodism.

Highlights This Week...

Complete Restoration

Dan Wilson

Using the imagery of the potter and clay from Jeremiah 18, Dan Wilson explains how God's process of restoration works. To restore something, you need both the ability and the desire. God demonstrates both conditions towards us - He wants to, and will, transform us into the men and women He had in mind prior to Eve’s fateful choice in Eden. He will do a life-changing work in us if we only let Him.
