Do you know someone who's isolated, and not even online?
Both the Methodist Church and the Church of England have launched FREE dial-in prayer and news services primarily set up to support isolated Britons, especially the elderly, who have been unable to take advantage of the boom in online church services.
The Methodist Church Dial-a-Prayer service and weekly Methodist News are available on:
- Listen to a prayer: 0808 281 2514
- Listen to news: 0808 281 2478
- Content is updated weekly on Thursday afternoon
Daily Hope, is a free dial-in worship service offering music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of a telephone line.
- The national line is available 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044.
Archbishop of Canterbury 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." Callers to Daily Hope will hear a special greeting from the Archbishop, before being given several options to choose from such as hymns, prayers, reflections and advice on Covid-19.
