ARADANA (Television Program)
“Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature." ~Mark 16:15
The Church has started an Evangelical program through television called Aradana. This means "Worship" in the main language of Andhra Pradesh (Telugu). Aradana was first broadcasted on the Helapuri Cable Vision (HCV) Network on November 12th, 2005.
Aradana currently airs every Saturday from 8:00PM to 8:30PM in Telugu. Bishop John SD Raju delivers messages and prays for the needy on this program. The broadcast reaches approximately 100 neighbouring villages apart from the city of Eluru.
Broadcasts of Aradana continue due to the freewill offerings of the faithful. As we have no studio of our own at this point, the Bishop and Anchor personally travel to the studio of SITI CABLE and record messages there before each broadcast. To make our own studio, it would cost about 2 lakhs Rupees ($4500 USD).
