For the past year, INcontext has been providing a weekly radio script written specifically for broadcast (five news items – one local, four international – with a Christian perspective and prayer points). After much deliberation and analysis of usage relative to staff capacity, it has been decided that this service will be suspended until further notice. Radio stations and other media organisations are welcome to make use of other resources on this website, as well as to contact the team for phone interviews and comments on news from a Christian perspective.

We thank you for your understanding until such time that this resource can be developed further again.
