Scottish Christian Radio Station Radio Alba.
- Categorized in: Adult Formation
Radio Alba a new Internet based radio station for Scottish Christians.
In the first instance it plans to provide broadcasting on an event bases, the first ‘live’ broadcast will be 31st November 2013. In the meantime it will offer morning prayer from 8.00 am on 1st November 2013 to the first event on 31st November 2013.
Radioalba.org – our internet radio venture – springs from the Glasgow Archdiocesan Music Committee’s wish to promote liturgical prayer and to give another dimension to religious celebrations. Naturally a lot of the music has come from what we create and use ourselves, and we hope and expect that other people will give us more material.
Our aims broadly speaking are:
- to promote richer prayer lives initially with Morning Prayers and school Morning Prayers, and then later:
- to focus on good news in a culture which sometimes seems to have more negative news than anything else
- to provide opportunities for short reflections on topics of interest and on the psalms and scripture.
- to direct attention to the good works of many charities and organisations which, in fact, reflect the fruits of the Spirit among us.
- to encourage new music and provide some kind of opportunity for it to be heard more widely.
- to offer reflections on the liturgical calendar and notable anniversaries, giving voice to people who might otherwise not be heard
- and finally, to deliver material in a contemporary medium accessible from a variety of devices such as PCs, laptops, phones and tablets.
