26 January: Free Dial-a-Prayer

The dial a prayer and news service has been a real blessing to some of our more isolated people as they are able to phone and listen, and the addition of a weekly message from Richard and I will hopefully be an added blessing to many.

I would encourage you to print off information about these phone lines, and post them to anyone you know who may be feeling lonely and cut off so that they can receive words of support and spiritual sustenance in these challenging days.
