Premier Christian Radio has teamed up with Durham Cathedral to become the first ever media partner for the institution.
As part of the partnership, the station will cover the main events and stories from the Cathedral, while the Cathedral will help to promote the station, including its Lifeline counselling service.
The Dean of Durham, the Very Reverend Michael Sadgrove said, “It is an exciting time for us here at Durham Cathedral. Our Open Treasure project will soon be coming to fruition: it will see our new spaces opening up in 2016 and the Treasures of St Cuthbert going back on public display. It is therefore excellent news that we have secured a radio media partner to help us promote this great project, alongside all the other wonderful work that is being done here at the Cathedral.
The Christian ethos of Premier Radio makes it a natural partner of this Cathedral as together we bear witness to the faith and hope that inspires all that we do in the name of Christ.”
Sylvia Walters, Regional Director at Premier Christian Radio said, “Premier is delighted to be working in partnership with Durham Cathedral sharing our passion to put faith at the heart of daily life and bring Christ to communities.
Both ministries have a history of innovation; spreading the timeless message of the Gospel in both traditional and new exciting ways. It is a joy to be working together.”
