                      A free phone line of hymns, reflections and prayers

 When church buildings were closed because of the coronavirus, (2020) the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, launched a free national phone line as a simple new way to bring worship and prayer into people’s homes.

 While churches have opened again, Daily Hope, continues to offer music, prayers, reflections and  worship services from the Church of England. The line is available 24 hours a day. 

 PhoneThe service was supported by the Church of England nationally as well as through the Connections group based at Holy Trinity Claygate in Surrey and the Christian charity Faith in Later Life. The Phone line temporarily closed for 6 weeks in 2023, but soon reinstated when Faith in Later Life took over its development and ownership.

  Callers will hear a special greeting from the Archbishop before being able to choose from a range of options, including hymns, prayers and reflections. 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.
