About Radio SYC

We are a group of friends from South Reading building connection and sharing hope, life and joy through our online community radio station.
We are part of Shift Youth + Community who base themselves in local communities and work with churches, schools and other agencies to provide the best opportunities for young people and communities to find their purpose and their voice.

We believe changing lives by transforming culture is possible – and we’re having a blast doing so through radio; we’d love you to join us!

About us


Why Are We Here?

We believe that ours can be a nation of thriving communities with hope filled young people creating a future where all can flourish. We are working to make that a reality. 


Who Are We?

We are a growing group of friends, dedicated to our faith, to one another and to the desire to see hope, life and joy return to our local community and across our nation.


What Do We Do?

We base ourselves in local communities and work with churches, schools and other agencies to shift culture and provide the best opportunities for young people and communities to flourish. Grounded in local mission this way, we are able to support others across our region and the country as they work to see their young people and communities flourishing too.


What makes us unique?

We have learnt how to transform the social atmosphere, the culture in a place. We’d love to show you how you can do the same; make the settings and groups you are part of happier, healthier places for everyone. We are more than just a team with a task to do, we support and join each other in many aspects of our lives as well as the youth and community work we do. For us every bit of our lives is an expression of our faith, not just our prayer times alone or together. In our work we focus both on young people and the communities in which they exist. In the same way we are equally concerned for our local communities and the nation as a whole.
