Blantyre and Nkhoma CCAP synods say they will soon roll out their radio stations after MACRA granted them licences.
Music directors for the two synods made the declarations in separate interviews Saturday last week during the Power of Gospel Music festival at the College of Medicine in Blantyre.
The festival was organised by the Blantyre CCAP Synod.
Nkhoma Synod director of music, Reverend Harry Nkhoma, said the synod expects to roll out the station in November or December.
â€œWe are expecting to roll out either at the end of November or early December. We want to go out to all presbyteries to hold workshops and competitions for the radio stationsâ€™ ownership.
â€œThese workshops are aimed at promoting hymn book songs because we have noticed recently that most choral groups are busy composing new songs instead of promoting hymn songs,â€ said Nkhoma.
Reverend Harold Mbeza, Blantyre Synod music director, said the bulk of the work on the radio station is complete.
â€œWe have enough materials to support the synod to roll out, but we are waiting for funds for other equipment and logistics.
â€œCurrently, we have a working committee for this project. We are also waiting for the committee to give us feedback before we launch the radio,â€ said Mbeza.
He said the synod introduced special pledge cards through which members are contributing a minimum of K100 for the project.
