DAILY HOPE – CHURCH OF ENGLAND LAUNCHES FREE PHONE LINE

Daily Hope

Daily Hope offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of a telephone line.

The line – which is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044 – has been set up particularly with those unable to join online church services during the period of restrictions in mind.

“With many in our country on lockdown, it’s important that we support those who are feeling lonely and isolated, whatever age they are.”

Archbishop Justin Welby

Options available include materials also available digitally by the Church of England’s Communications team such as Prayer During the Day and Night Prayer updated daily, from Common Worship, and a recording of the Church of England weekly national online service.

A section called Hymn Line offers callers a small selection of hymns, updated daily. An option entitled ‘Hymns We Love’, provides a hymn and reflection and is based on an initiative by the Connections group.

Christ is risen, alleluia!

Christ is Risen, Alleluia, Amen!
God is with us.
Around us and within us.
Life and Love are stronger than death.
Thanks be to God!

Join us from home in a short prayer service as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Click on the image below.

Easter Day

We wish you, your families and friends a Happy, Peaceful and Healthy Easter. Thanks be to God!

Churches to temporarily close

All Church of England churches are to close with immediate effect, including for private prayer, in an effort to help limit the transmission of the coronavirus COVID-19. The Bishops and Archbishops called on the Church to “continue to pray, to love, to care for the vulnerable”.
