Heavens Road fm is a not-for-profit Catholic radio run entirely by unpaid volunteers who live all over the UK and as far away as Canada and Nigeria.
Based at St John’s Seminary, Guildford, we make and broadcast a wide range of enjoyable programmes to appeal to Catholics and non-Catholics alike.
Our Mission is to celebrate our Catholic Faith - by broadcasting a wide mix of interesting and original programmes, which showcase the creative talent within our Catholic community. We’re working hard to grow our mission by expanding both our listener base and our team .
Heaven’s Road fm Catholic Radio was launched in November 2013. The new online radio is the brainchild of Gerry Coates a Catholic singer/songwriter, who launched the original Heart Gives Unto Heart Catholic Radio for the Papal visit in 2010. Gerry said “Our new online radio sees its mission as providing a positive voice to celebrate our Catholic Faith, we aim to appeal to a wide audience and will broadcast a magazine mix of programmes. I believe strongly that the talents in our Catholic community should be encouraged and through this new medium we hope to increase communication within the Catholic community by providing a platform for Catholic clergy and lay people, schools, and charities to have their voices heard”!
We run the station on a shoe-string budget and always welcome donations – to continue and expand we need funds to cover out-of-pocket expenses for our volunteers who are all unpaid and give their time freely to the team - without their hard-work and dedication the Radio could not function. We also need to upgrade our broadcast licence and essential equipment; and cover overheads like phones, postage, rent and other essential services. Any contribution you can make will be greatly appreciated! Thank you and God bless! Please help by donating here - “every little helps”!
We’re also looking to broadcast your school/church concerts, gigs, plays, etc – please contact us asap to have your material included in the schedule – it’s your Radio!
