2,000 attend Premier’s birthday at St Paul’s

More than 2,000 guests attended Premier Christian Radio’s 20th anniversary celebration at St Paul’s Cathedral in London on Wednesday evening.

The event, which was broadcast live on Premier Christian Radio and via a webcast, included speeches from the Bishop of London, the Rt Rev Richard Chartres; Premier’s CEO Peter Kerridge; Premier’s founder, Peter Meadows; former chairman David Heron; along with Premier presenters including Pam Rhodes, John Pantry and Rick Easter.

Acting chairman of the Premier Christian Media Trust, Jonathan Alderton Ford, writing in the souvenir programme, said: “I believe Premier stands on the brink of another amazing 20 years. The advances in technology and the ability to reach people literally wherever they are, speaks right into the heart of some of the challenges we face in the 21st century as we see the changing shape of church and the new ways people are engaging with the Christian faith”.

The evening included drama and comedy sketches telling the story of Premier’s development over the last year performed by the Riding Lights Theatre Company, plus music and songs from Graham Kendrick and the All Souls’ Orchestra.
