Off Grid Christianity is a podcast for Christians who feel disconnected from Church...whether they attend one or not! Hosted by Martin Purnell, former 'Drivetime' presenter on the UK's first FM Christian Radio station, 'Cross Rhythms City', in Stoke-on-Trent. Martin also pioneered the legendary lunchtime discussion programme 'The Soapbox' on national Christian radio station 'UCB'.
In recent years, Martin took a step back from direct involvement in broadcasting to focus on family life in his adopted home of Northern Ireland. However, throughout that time, the concept behind OGC has been developing on the 'back burner' and we're excited to bring that to fruition, through this regular podcast.
