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.
VOWR held its Second Annual Radiothon in October and this year we are raising funds for the upgrading of our Station. Your pledges will help the station work toward a better sound quality being sent over the airwaves to your homes.
Donations can still be pledged at anytime by dropping by the station, on our web site – www.vowr.org or by mailing your contribution to the postal address on the right side of this page. For those listeners who have contributed our many thanks 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.
