DailyHope, a free national telephone line, offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of the phone.

A Church of England initiative in partnership with CONNECTIONS at Holy Trinity Claygate, and Faith in Later Life

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; to provide comfort and spiritual nourishment to the most isolated in our society.

“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 Carol-Line offers callers a small selection of carols, updated daily. An option entitled ‘Chair Exercises on the Phone’, provides recorded over-the-phone tuition to keep listeners fit and healthy from the safety of a chair during this time at home.
