VOWR has been broadcasting since July 1924 and is operated solely by volunteers, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We depend mostly on our listeners for financial support to continue to provide all those enjoyable hours of music and the spoken word.
Friday of last week (July 24,2015) marked the 91st anniversary of the first broadcast from VOWR. We remain on the air only because of your dedication. We rely on donations from our listeners to keep us on the air. Tax receipts are issued for all donations. Thank you for your continued support.

Welcome to VOWR Radio
VOWR Radio, located in St. John's, NL. VOWR is the only radio station owned by The United Church of Canada and has been broadcasting from the same location (Patrick Street and Hamilton Avenue) since 1924. Our station began as an outreach ministry of Wesley United Church and was the 'child' of Rev. Dr. J.G. Joyce. Operated solely by volunteers, our station broadcasts 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - we are never off the air! VOWR can be heard on the AM dial at 800 (on the Avalon Peninsula), on-line by clicking the radio beneath the index table, and now on Rogers Digital Television on Channel 945 and on Bell Aliant Digital Cable on Channel 878.
VOWR is pleased to offer radio service 24 hours a day, seven days a week. This is made possible by the devoted work of our many volunteers
A major part of VOWR's Radio ministry finds life in the broadcasting of Sunday worship services from churches, of all denominations, in the area. The majority of our worship services are broadcast from Wesley United Church, with whom we are directly affiliated, but we also invite all city and area churches to have their services broadcast, either live or taped.
