Premier Christian Radio to help those alone at Christmas

A Christian radio station that broadcasts in Watford is aiming to match people with places over Christmas so no one is alone.

Premier Christian Radio has been asking churches, charities, clubs and other organisations to step forward and contact them with details of any localised Christmas Day activities planned.

The venues and locations will then be promoted both online and on-air so people who would otherwise be alone, can meet up with others on Christmas Day.

Premier presenter Loretta Andrews, who came up with the idea, said she hoped to produce a truly countrywide list of places for people to spend Christmas Day with others in their own home town.

She said: "It’s a big ask but it’s not nice for anyone to be alone, especially at Christmas.

"This is a great way for the Church to show the love of God in a practical way at Christmas time and we are confident that the idea will receive a broad level of support."

Organisations with a venue to promote can complete an online form at www.premier.org.uk/drive.

I think this is a great idea, and credit to Ms Andrews and all the staff and volunteers who take part and might just make it work and grow into a regular thing. It shows their generosity, humanity and love for fellow human beings.

I just don't get where god fits in. He doesn't appear to have had much input so far. I refuse to believe these good people wouldn't bother if it wasn't for the fact they are christians.

The Bible and belief in God can and do give positive purpose to countless peoples lives. Yes they may have been good people even without their belief and faith but they may also not have had the drive to go the extra mile as it were.

And of course there are plenty of examples of people who were living 'bad' lives or even lives that were stuck in the rut, routine, directionless who have been revived and transformed when they discovered God and His word and started to live by its principles.
