TWR-UK is a British Christian radio station and part of Trans World Radio (TWR) a multinational evangelical Christian media distributor.

TWR-UK broadcasts Christian programming, including sermons, Bible teaching and interviews across the United Kingdom.


TWR-UK was founded in 1963, at that time TWR-UK only broadcast programmes for a couple of hours each day. These were broadcast initially on shortwave from the much-loved Monte Carlo transmitter,[1] a transmitter formerly used to broadcast German war propaganda in the Second World War but later acquired by Trans World Radio in 1958.[2] With the arrival of satellite technology in the 1990s, the possibility of 24/7 broadcasting schedules emerged. From 2001 TWR-UK began broadcasting a 24/7 schedule, the same year they joined the Sky satellite service.[3]

In 2005 TWR-UK relocated their headquarters to Altrincham in Greater Manchester where they currently broadcast from today.[4]

In 2013 to mark the 50th anniversary of TWR-UK, the broadcasters launched their first digital app, making it possible for listeners to catch up on old programmes and listen live through their own personal devices.[5]

In April 2015 TWR-UK began broadcasting on Freeview making their programmes available to most households across the UK.[6]

Overseas projects

As well as being a national UK radio station, TWR-UK also support a variety of overseas projects. Notably in 2022 TWR-UK when listeners raised over £25,000 to support people living in Ukraine during the Russo-Ukrainian War.[7]

The wider Trans World Radio group, broadcasts globally in over 300 languages in 190 countries, making it the world's most far-reaching Christian radio network.[8]


TWR-UK supporters come from a variety of Christian denominations including: Anglican, Baptist, Evangelical, Methodist and Pentecostal churches.
