The Church of England (with others) have launched a new FREE ‘Daily Hope’ phone number – 0800 804 8044
After a welcome message from Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, there are 3 main options:
- Hymns We Love – listen to a hymn and a little reflection about it
- Hymns Line – listen to some hymns which are updated daily
- Listen to some simple prayers
There are other options including the weekly service that’s put on Radio 4 and morning & evening prayers.
Justin Webly said:
“With many in our country on lockdown, it’s important that we support those who are feeling lonely and isolated, whatever age they are.
“The Daily Hope service will allow people to hear hymns, prayers and words that offer comfort and hope, especially in this Easter season.
“I want to urge people to spread the news about this service. If there is someone you know who is particularly struggling, give them a call and let them know about the Daily Hope. I’m going to phone a friend; will you join me?”
So if you know someone who you think would benefit form the Daily Hope phone line, please give them a call and let them know about it!
