Daily Hope is a free telephone line offering hymns, prayers, reflections and church services from The Church of England. Daily Hope grew out of Connections and Hymns We Love, two initiatives for seniors created by Holy Trinity Church Claygate, and has been supported by the charity Faith in Later Life.

Created in direct response to Covid-19, it is aimed at the 2.5 million over 75's who do not access the internet, representing some of the most isolated and vulnerable at this time.


"With many in our country on lockdown, it's important that we support those who are feeling lonely and isolated, whatever ages they are."

Archbishop Justin Welby


Since it's launch at the end of April 2020, Daily Hope has received a staggering 325,000 calls to date and represents nearly 4 million minutes of call time. There have been 47,000 individual callers. More than 27,000 of whom have each called more than 10 times.
