The Church of England launches free daily hope helpline
The Archbishop of Canterbury has launched a 24-hour free phone line for Christian worship and prayer, aimed at those who have no or limited access to the internet. Justin Welby 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.”
People calling the free number will hear a greeting from the Archbishop and can then choose from a range of options including hymns, prayers, reflections and advice on Covid-19. 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.
