In addition to the online resources, there is a telephone service to allow those who do not have internet access to listen to the service of worship by telephone. The facility is free of charge for anyone calling by landline or mobile phone from within the UK.

Anyone who would like full details of how to access the telephone line, in order to share them with someone who needs this service should email
