Cross Rhythms Plymouth is a charity run (charity number 1117215) Christian community radio station broadcasting good news and positive radio to the city 24/7.
We are passionate about bringing a message of hope to Plymouth and have had many testimonials sent to us over the years from listeners whose lives have been positively impacted by the content they have heard on the station.
We love to partner with local charities, community groups and other organisations in Plymouth and regularly air interviews with them to help them share what they do. These have included; Pregnancy Crisis Care SW, St Luke's Hospice, A Rocha, Friends & Families of Special Children and many more.
We are licensed by Ofcom and broadcast on FM, online and on app. You can tune in to the station on 96.3FM in Plymouth, online anywhere in the world on bit.ly/crplymradio or on app: bit.ly/CRPlymAndroid or bit.ly/CRPlymiOS.

Here are just a few testimonials we have received from listeners and featured organisations about the difference Cross Rhythms Plymouth makes;
"It’s been really helpful being on Community Matters. It helps because when you’re interviewed you really get to explain what you do and even people who know me have come up to me after hearing the interview and have said, ‘now I really understand what you do'" - Julie Nash, Pregnancy Crisis Care SW.
"I live in Liskeard, but I used to live in Plymouth. I work at Plymouth City Council two days a week and always listen to Cross Rhythms on my way to and from work. Thank you for brightening my morning and evening commutes.' - Email from a listener.
"From one of the Community Matters interviews on Cross Rhythms Plymouth we had a listener contact us to join our third party reporting scheme" - Paul Laity, Devon and Cornwall Police.
"My Wife and I have Cross Rhythms on all the time when we are not listening to our iPods which again are full of music which we purchased through your website due to hearing it on your station." Email from Stephen, a local listener.
WHY DO WE NEED THE FUNDS?
Most of our equipment has been in use since our foundation in 2007 and as a result a lot of it now needs upgrading!
We have a total of almost £9,000 worth of equipment upgrades this year and we are putting these equipment upgrades into 2 phases, this crowdfunder being for phase 1.
Phase 1 is to purchase equipment needed in order to upgrade our connection from our studio to our transmitter site which must be done this summer and as such is our most urgent need.
As a charity run community radio station we rely in a large part on donations to exist and so, combined with grant fund applications and funds already raised at a fundraising dinner in March 2019, this Crowdfunder project will be a major source of funding for the equipment upgrades.
Any support you can give us is gratefully received! Please do share this project to anyone you know who may also want support it.
