Daily Hope has been available since Sunday and runs for 24 hours a day. It provides Church of England prayers, hymns, and reflections for those who dial in. The number is 0800 8048044.

“Pandemic”: a poem by Lynn Ungar

In this video essay Emily Downe brings to life visually the powerful and moving poem Pandemic by Lynn Ungar. 28/03/2020

‘Do not reach out your hands. Reach out your heart. Reach out your words. Reach out all the tendrils of compassion that move, invisibly, where we cannot touch.’

With thanks to Lynn Ungar for writing the poem and inspiring Emily Downe to produce this short film.
