More Than Radio – The Work of Hope 103.2 Impacting People With God’s Love

Hope 103.2 is community-funded media with a mission:

To impact people with experiences of God’s love so that they may become more like Christ and the world more like the Kingdom.

When you give a gift to Hope 103.2, you are supporting more than what you hear on-air – you are financially supporting a multimedia organisation trying to bring a message of hope, and connect communities in that one hope, to the people of Sydney and further thanks to ever-growing digital spaces.

I Want To Unite People in Hope


The work of Hope 103.2


Here are a number of ways Hope 103.2 works to impact people with experiences of God’s love…

How can I be more involved?


Music and shows


Shows and music

Hope 103.2 offers a mix of mainstream and contemporary Christian music that is uplifting and family-friendly. Our shows such as Breakfast with Sam Robinson, Mornings with Katrina Roe and Afternoons with Laura Bennett present fun, helpful and informative content in a safe-listening environment so that you finish each day feeling encouraged.

If you’re looking for a more reflective Christian space of music and messages to live by, then Inspire by Hope 103.2 is for you!

There’s also FRESH – playing the best new music discoveries and next generation of Christian artists – and Christmas Hope, which plays (you guessed it!) 100 per cent of the Christmas hits you know and love.

hope1032.com.au and Hope 103.2 app


Website and app mockups

Right here on hope1032.com.au, we host our four Stations – Hope 103.2, Inspire by Hope 103.2, FRESH and Christmas Hope – plus the stories that mainstream media don’t cover such as the in-depth look into the faith behind Sydney’s Abdallah family, or how volunteer chaplains responded to victims of bushfires and floods. We also focus on campaigns to activate community generosity such as Back to Business and Kickstart Your Career – both borne out of a desire to meaningfully contribute to pandemic recovery efforts – and resources to strengthen your faith and inspire hope like our Easter, Christmas and Keep Calm Hopeland packages.

On our new app, we highlight the things you’ve told us you love the most – the latest music, podcasts, news and stories.

Hope News


Hope News Service

The Hope News Service included a lot of prayer, 40 years of patience and incredible generosity from Hope 103.2 supporters in order to launch it at the end of 2019 with a team of professional journalists, directed by news veteran Anita Savage, who gather the news each hour and report it to meet the needs and expectations of our listeners.

Practical support

We, at Hope 103.2, strongly believe in faith in action, and one of the ways we feel we can practically support and journey with you through all seasons of life is through prayer. It has the potential to transform people and culture and the ability to unite communities and build hope, regardless of circumstances. We also encourage you to connect with a local church and have our Church Directory available to find one nearest you.

Other practical support includes our Community Noticeboard service that helps churches and not-for-profit community groups promote their upcoming events for free, and highlighting reputable counselling services and helplines if you’re struggling and need to talk to someone.

The Hope Collective

Each year, we come across so many amazing organisations, businesses and individuals who just want a way to help – especially in times of crisis (and, we can all agree, we’ve experienced a few of those lately). So, Hope 103.2 wanted to find a way to be a catalyst for those who are looking for ways to give to reach those in our community in need and launched The Hope Collective that has already seen huge community generosity efforts such as the Kids to Camp appeal – sending children from drought-ravaged NSW regional towns to Scripture Union camps – and Volkswurst’s German food truck catering a COVID-safe street party and, more recently, feeding Nepean Cancer Care Centre.

Events


For King and Country Australian tour 2019

Who else is going to support bringing Christian bands like For King & Country and Rend Collective to Sydney other than your very own Christian community station Hope 103.2? We love to help host and promote great faith-centred and community outreach events from Hillsong Church’s Colour Conference and Blacktown carols to primary school Christmas markets and Mother’s Day breakfasts.

Hope 103.2 Sponsors


Sydney city

While businesses, churches and community groups choose to sponsor Hope 103.2 because of our unique and dedicated audience who tune in longer than the average commercial radio listening time, our family-friendly content and affordability, many of our sponsors are also like-minded in our pursuit to impact people with experiences of God’s love.

This year, our friends at Spannenberg & Son gifted a $45,000 home renovation to a missionary family who were working to support young refugees in South West Sydney because the company’s director said there were a lot of people who had “done it very tough over the last 12 months” and he saw it as an opportunity to bless others.
