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, which is available from today, 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.

During this very difficult time, and in an effort to provide care and love to families suffering loss, Buxton Team Parish and Derby Diocese have decided that until further notice, all church funeral fees will not be charged to Funeral Directors acting on behalf of bereaved families in the area.
We need to let you know that all church services and meetings at Buxton Team Parish have been suspended until the foreseeable future. This includes Sunday morning and evening services at all six Buxton Team Parish churches, St Anne's service on a Monday and Christ Church Burbage service on a Wednesday morning.
This decision has been made following the advice that has been issued by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York. This is based on the Government's guidance around non-essential contact.
We are planning in the coming weeks to offer different ways of prayer and worship online.
This is a difficult time for many of us.
And if anyone is isolating and need some support then support is available through this link. The churches in Buxton are ready to help. Please use this form for those you know in Buxton who you would like to refer for support (with their permission) or for yourself:
