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.  Now Firstlight has been on air for EIGHT years!  Happy Anniversary Firstlight!

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 programmes 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 programme 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.
