Vision has been on air in the Brisbane area for more than two decades, for most of that time via a network of low power FM services. In 2018 we had the unexpected opportunity to expand our Brisbane coverage to include 1053AM, through leasing this frequency from another party, and what a blessing this has been.
Unfortunately, in 2019 this frequency was sold to another party who gave notice they would be exercising a right to terminate our agreement. News of this change was quite distressing, and we took it to prayer.
Praise God, we have been successful in securing access to another frequency. From early July 2020 onward, Vision will be heard 1620AM (with 1053AM also remaining on-air until the end of August).
Our ultimate desire is to have a city wide FM frequency that we own. These are very hard to secure, but we continue to pray, and in the meantime we thank God to every opportunity He gives.
This is another way you can listen to us. Being FM the quality of sound is far superior to AM, however they are low power so the range of each is limited to about 5km from each transmitter. See full listing at the bottom of this page.
Listen anywhere you have a data connection - even in your car! Download the free Vision app by simply searching for 'Vision Christian Media' in your mobile app store. You can also find us on TuneIn, Apple TV (and some other aggregators) or right here on our website.
If you have free-to-air satellite TV for channels like TBN and God TV, just tune across the radio channels and look for Vision Christian Radio. Or if you’re a caravanner with access to VAST satellite, we’re there too – on channel 614.
Every minute of the day Vision Christian Radio combines the potential of radio with the power of God’s Word to bring hope that uplifts your spirit through great music, friendly conversation and solid Biblical teaching.
The Vision Christian Radio story is amazing. From one regional station in 1999, today you can listen in any one of over 700 stations covering major cities, regional and rural areas. Each day Vision broadcasts great music, engaging chat, encouraging real life stories, Scriptural perspectives, news and much more, including solidly Biblical programmes from esteemed speakers such as Chuck Missler, Ravi Zacharias and Greg Laurie.

Greater Brisbane is the current home and birthplace of Vision Christian Radio. On 1 February 1999 the very first transmission went out from our studios in Springwood, sent via satellite to station #1 in nearby Beaudesert. It wasn’t long before a number of low power FM stations were established around the city – first, Springwood, near where our first offices were located (87.6 FM), followed by Redcliffe (87.6 FM), north of Brisbane. The Redcliffe transmitter is not far from where the city of Brisbane itself first started as a penal colony in 1824. Over time the citywide FM network would grow to cover a large part of the city.
In 2018 we had the unexpected opportunity to expand our Brisbane coverage to include an AM service, initially on 1053AM, but then moving to 1620AM.
Vision's first broadcast studios were in a converted three-bedroom cottage. In 2001 we moved to the next suburb (Underwood) where we would remain for the next 19 years and grow in size to a network of over 700 relay stations covering every state of Australia. In May 2020 we moved back to Springwood into the larger Vision Christian Media Hub, not far from our first studios.
Our hope is that every Australian would know the good news of God, and we’re passionate to share it with whoever will listen, whether they are in Brisbane or beyond.
