The Souter Charitable Trust has made a substantial one off donation to SAT-7
SAT-7 is a Christian satellite television and digital media broadcaster serving 25 countries across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). It began in 1996 with a single two-hour broadcast per week, and now it airs Christian content 24 hours a day, seven days a week, on four satellite channels and various online platforms.
SAT-7’s vision is to see a growing church in the MENA, confident in Christian faith and witness, serving the community and contributing to the good of society and culture. Its mission is thus to provide the churches of the region with an opportunity to witness to Jesus Christ through inspirational, informative and educational media services.
So SAT-7 seeks to make the Christian Gospel available to everyone in the region, especially to those who might never otherwise hear it. And our programmes also encourage, support and empower the Church in its life, work and witness, not least in areas of political turmoil and anti-Christian persecution.
SAT-7 broadcasts in the three main languages of the region: Arabic, Farsi and Turkish. Our programmes are mostly produced and presented by local believers and have an estimated audience of 25 million viewers. They are supported by dedicated audience relations teams, who respond to more than a thousand contacts every day.
Generous funding from the Souter Charitable Trust supports SAT-7’s programmes for children and young people. Our broadcasting promotes the health and wellbeing of our younger viewers, encourages them in godly values and lifestyles, and equips them for a fulfilled life of service to God and their communities. We are deeply grateful to the Trust for partnering with us in this ministry.
