LAST week Sunday saw the launch of a brand-new Christian lifestyle magazine show on SABC 2, titled Slice of Light.

The programme, which is said to have a fresh, clean feel, and profiles real people making a difference in their communities for Christ, was shot almost entirely in the Eastern Cape by Port Elizabeth production company Sunshine Coast Studios.

“With all linking material shot outdoors, at beaches, parks and country landscapes, there is much natural beauty on display. We are showcasing a part of the country rarely seen on our screens,” producer Nicola Barbour said.

Slice of Light is anchored by two presenters. One will be a familiar name to SABC audiences, the charming and energetic Fiks Mahola.

The other a fresh local talent, Megan Fisher, who makes her TV debut with this show.

When asked what viewers could expect from the series for the next 13 weeks, Barbour said, “Our stories have depth and they have heart.

“Viewers can expect to be entertained and uplifted.

“We love to laugh, so, humour is a big part of it as well.

“And as the credits roll, we just want viewers to feel rested and encouraged, and thinking positively about the new week,” Barbour said.

After filming 13 episodes’ worth of inspiring stories, presenter Fisher had a hard time choosing her favourite. “We have been so blessed to profile such a variety of excellent stories and people. For me, this series has been life-changing.

“I have always lived in the Eastern Cape, and I had no idea about much of the outstanding work going on around me,” Fisher said.

Mahola said, “I think we see so much bad news on our screens and so often people say, where is the church in this country?

“What are they doing? But from the stories we have profiled, we can see, that the Body of Christ is moving and doing the most incredible things across this nation.”

The first episode profiled Siya Sebenza, an exciting work scheme, which is turning our unemployed young people into employed members of the workforce.

“Linking material for this episode was shot on the iconic pier at Hobie Beach. I am just so grateful to the SABC for taking a chance with a PE company and I cannot wait for South Africa to share in Slice of Light,” Babour said. The show will run every Sunday for the next 13 weeks on SABC 2 at 10:30.
