The dignity of Sunday morning is steadfastly preserved at VOWR. The centre piece begins at 11:00 AM with a live broadcast of a worship service from a St. John's area church.

It was the reason VOWR was founded at Wesley United Church over ninety years ago; to allow those who cannot get out to church to share in a worship service. While most of our broadcasts still originate from Wesley, VOWR regularly broadcasts services from churches of other denominations in the St. John's area. Two different services are broadcast every Sunday. The 11:00 AM service is broadcast live while the 7:00 PM service is usually recorded in the morning for presentation in the evening. Please check our Worship Schedule to find out which St. John's area church will host our next broadcast.
