Songs of Hope stalwart moves on

For 25 years Bruce Sandilands has contributed to Songs of Hope radio program on 88.3 Southern FM. Unfortunately he has moved to live further away and can no longer get to the studio on Sunday mornings. We will miss his enthusiastic presentation of Jesus Christ and the Christian life. We will miss his great music selections and his CD collection. We will miss his friendship. For all those years he has been a member of Southern FM. Bruce continues in ministry in his church in Cranbourne. Thank you Bruce!

Here is a short tribute to Bruce put to air by Rod on 12Jul20

And here is a tribute to Bruce from Chris Whiting on Sunday 19Jul20

Church during Covid-19


Church services with live congregations have stopped in Australia at the governments request, to fight the Covid-19 virus. But church worship services are integral to Christianity, and many churches are going online with streaming and worship video recordings.

Here in the southern suburbs of Melbourne Songs of Hope will continue on-air each Sunday from 7am to 9am. We will be bringing Christian worship music and Christian messages of hope to the southern suburbs of Melbourne. There will be a local Christian sermon at 7:30am each week as part of this programme.

In addition here are some of the Christian streaming church services now available in the southern suburbs of Melbourne:
