Heart of Christmas SOS

96five’s Heart of Christmas SOS is back, designed to provide encouragement and a Christmas blessing for a family or person who has been doing it a bit tough.

Thanks to some generous supporters and local businesses, 96five’s Ken and Nicky have got hampers overflowing with Chrissy goodness, to share with Brisbane’s most deserving families.

So far we’ve been able to bless Kate, Nicole as well as 8 year old Aliannah and her Mum, Bianca.

Thanks to Smarter Air and MyPlace Australia we were also able to bless Judy, Simon and their family with air-conditioning throughout their house valued at $13,000. Check out their story below!

Christmas Messages from Local Church Pastors

2023 has been a challenging year for many so 96five has teamed up with local Brisbane pastors and church leaders to share some encouragement to those who need a reminder of the reason for the season.

These messages are shared on air in the lead up to Christmas but we have gathered them together here and we pray they would be a source of encouragement to you.
