The Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has launched a free national phone line as a simple new way to bring worship and prayer into people’s homes while church buildings are closed because of the coronavirus.
Daily Hope offers music, prayers and reflections as well as full worship services from the Church of England at the end of a telephone line.
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.

Back in October we told you about gentlespaces, the network of bereavement support groups we are setting up across Milton Keynes. We are delighted to say that we have now revised our offer to make it available via zoom until such time as we are able to meet physically with more consistency.
This Spring we will be running three coMPass courses: ‘What shall we tell the kids?’, ‘Worship: a Spring Clean’ and ‘Being a resilient church’.
We hope you enjoyed our Advent Reflections 2020: ‘Hidden in Christ’. We’re pleased to introduce a new series of reflections for the Season of Epiphany written by Rev. Matt Trendall – Epiphany Reflections 2021: ‘Looking for Light’.
