Taster Day Candidates

1st Interview Day – 21st July 2019
We invited and they came! Following on from a successful Taster Day, Adventist Radio London held its first interview day which was filled with excitement and a little anxiety, at least for me, but probably for the interviewees as well.
The day began with a few ups and downs…. literally! We moved from a room on the 1st floor to a room on the 3rd floor so, I was ‘blessed’ with a day of exercise going up and down the stairs, meeting the interviewees and escorting them to the interview panel in the upper echelons of the Advent Centre.
The centre was filled with a lot of activity that day including an Art Exhibition and the beautiful dulcet tones coming from the sanctuary as the London Adventist Chorale practised became the backdrop to my afternoon trips up and down the stairs.
We were blessed with a range of people of various ages and talents who were keen to tell us about their skills and experiences and what they could bring to the radio station that will continue to take us on a journey of continuous improvement, progression and increased output in terms of programmes that our listeners can draw from to make decisions for Christ.
The panel, our radio director Pastor Mike Hamilton, the SEC Communications/Media director Pastor Sam Davies, the programme manager Mike Johnson and the Breakfast Show presenter Lynette Allcock, were encouraged by the calibre and skills of the individual interviewees.
Going forward, we are confident that the five people we spoke with can play a role in the work of ARL and will add their voices and gifts to the talented group of presenters and producers that already work to bring the gospel to the airwaves.
Another volunteer interview day is planned for the 18th August we’ll relay the news of that day also.
