We are SAT-7
We support the Christians of the Middle East and North Africa in their Christian witness and lives. We beam the Good News of the Kingdom of God straight into people’s homes, into the centre of family life. We deliver Christian satellite television for the Middle East and North Africa.
We make God’s love visible.
Dare to Believe! out now
Terence Ascott, SAT-7’s Founder, new book Dare to Believe! Stories of Faith from the Middle East is out now.

If you have ever wondered what the Gospel of Christ means in a harsh world, this story is for you.” – Stephen Green, Baron Green of Hurstpierpoint (United Kingdom)
Celebrate with us as we mark 25 years of ministry in the Middle East and North Africa. We’re celebrating the many lives transformed and communities supported, and an exciting digital transformation.
