Radio Rhema & Shine TV

Radio Rhema


Rhema has been broadcasting to the people of New Zealand since 1978. Over the years, we have grown from one man's dream and a backyard studio, to become one of the country's largest radio networks, reaching thousands of people every day.

The first radio station in New Zealand to use satellite technology, we continue to break new ground at the forefront of broadcasting technology.

Rhema differs from commercial radio in that 30,000 New Zealanders unite with staff in changing lives for good by financially supporting the station, paying a yearly membership fee. These subscriptions, along with donations, currently make up the majority of our income. Our bottom line is changed lives.

Without the love, support and prayers of these people Rhema would not be what it is today.



Tokoroa has its own Radio Rhema station located on Colson's Hill. The Radio Rhema signal is brought down from satellite and re-broadcast over the Southern Waikato area on 99.7 FM


Radio Rhema is part of the Rhema Broadcasting Group (RBG). Other radio stations that broadcast from Hamilton, over the Waikato region and may be receivable in Tokoroa are Radio Rhema AM, Life FM, Southern Star and The Word.
