Reaching people through the radio

BBC Radio Merseyside Daybreak presenter Helen Jones spoke to us this week about how her Daybreak programme can help bring worship into the homes of people during this time of social isolation.

As you will be aware everything is changing day to day re Government guidance and information regarding the Coronavirus.

Here at BBC Radio Merseyside, we have changed some things too...
BBC Local Radio has introduced a virtual service on Sunday breakfast shows.
The service will be broadcast from 8am - 8.30am Sunday morning on BBC Radio Merseyside. 
Also there is the opportunity for Faith communities / individual listeners to use BBC Sounds  - where we are hosting previous local Act of Worships broadcast on BBC Radio Merseyside - listeners can listen back /play - at a time that suits them.

Here is the link to the ‘Daybreak with Helen Jones’ homepage
There will also be the opportunity over the duration for faith groups to share what is happening for them on the Sunday morning Daybreak show.  

Let me know if your local community group/ parish church / Sunday Youth Group doing something to help during these difficult times. What are you offering online / Facebook / Youtube - so that BBC Radio Merseyside can include stories and public service info in our ‘Make a Difference’ feature at quarter past and quarter to the hour 6am - 6pm every day.
You can email information direct to or to me and I can add to the items.
