In a world where chaos and noise often seem to reign, there is a source of solace, inspiration, and spiritual guidance that has been shining brightly for over 30 years. We’re talking about our beloved Christian radio station, 1WAY FM, which has been a beacon of hope and faith for countless individuals. This invaluable resource is completely listener-funded, and it’s time for us to come together and support its mission.
From the 15th to the 17th of November, we aim to raise $50,000 which will fund 1000 hours of radio. Our upcoming appeal, themed ‘Be the Light,’ will not only secure the future of 1WAY FM but will also allow it to shine even brighter!
Why ‘Be the Light’?
The theme ‘Be the Light’ was chosen with great care and intention. Inspired by the chorus of For King and Country’s song, What Are We Waiting For? The chorus has a line that says, ‘What if we could be the light that no one could ignore?”
In a world filled with uncertainty, turmoil, and division, our 1WAY FM stands as a source of unwavering hope and positivity. It radiates the light of faith, love, and unity, reaching out to those in need of spiritual nourishment. By coming together to support this vital resource, we become the light that guides others towards a path of hope, love, and togetherness.
What 1WAY FM Stands For
1WAY FM is more than just a broadcasting entity. It’s a lifeline for our community, providing not only spiritual guidance but also a platform for discussions, music, and community events. It fosters a sense of belonging and offers a space where people from all walks of life can come together in the name of faith.
This station is entirely funded by its listeners, which means that without your support, it cannot continue to operate. By contributing to our appeal, you are directly ensuring the station’s future, enabling it to touch more lives, spread more love, and be the light for countless individuals seeking hope and encouragement.

As the dates of our ‘Be the Light’ fundraiser draw near, we invite you to reflect on the role 1WAY FM plays in your life and the lives of those around you. Together, we can ensure that this invaluable resource continues to shine as a beacon of hope and faith.
We hope you’ll join us in this important endeavour. By being the light, we can ensure that 1WAY FM remains a powerful source of hope, faith and encouragement for many generations to come. Your support matters, and together, we can make a lasting difference.
“Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colours in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.
