Christian News and Worship Services on TV, Radio and Internet

TV
Songs of Praise — BBC1 usually 1.15pm on Sunday.

The BBC is altering its schedules to take account of the crisis and this will include more religious broadcasting. Subject to outside broadcast capacity BBC One aims to broadcast a weekly Sunday morning church service, so look out for additional programmes.

TBN UK Freeview channel 65 or Sky 582 (some older TVs may no longer be able to receive this channel). You need to be selective on which programmes to watch — if you don't find something that suites your worship style, try a different time.

Radio
BBC Radio 4 — Sunday worship 8.10am; Daily Service 9.45am (Long wave 1500m only) or on digital radio.
BBC Radio 3 — Choral evensong 3.30pm on Wednesday repeated 3pm on Sunday
BBC Radio 2 — Sunday 7am-9am — music, chat and faith topics (some Christian)
BBC Radio Berkshire (FM or digital only) — Sunday 7-9 am Sunday topical religious content (not all Christian)
BBC Radio Solent (FM or digital only) — Sunday 6-9 am Sunday topical religious content (not all Christian)

All of the above are available on BBC Sounds or iPlayer for 28 days after broadcast if you have access to those services on a laptop, tablet, smartphone or TV. If you have such a device but don't know how to access these, we can probably help you.
