Do you miss worshipping together? Have you limited technology? Why not join us for a weekly service on a phone line?
Join us on Sunday mornings at 8.30 am where you will be able to talk to each other and to join in our service of Morning Prayer. (Alternate BCP and Common Worship)

Joining instructions Using your telephone (landline OR mobile) dial:
0333 0164 757
See if you can put your phone on ‘speaker’ or ‘hands free’ so that you can move it away from your ear. This isn’t essential but might make it easier for you.

You will hear a woman’s voice saying “Welcome to Whypay (and a short marketing message)” then, “Please enter your conference room number followed by the hash key”.
So using your keypad type in: 80854743 #
You will then hear the same voice say “Please enter your Guest Pin followed by the hash key”
So using your keypad type in: 1506 #
When you are connected if you are the first on the line some music will play, when someone arrives you will hear a tone, just say hello to each other and when everyone is there we will begin.
If calls to landlines are included within your bundled minutes, then calls to WHYPAY? will be too, making the call FREE.
If you do not have any bundled minutes, or exceed your minutes allowance, then calls to WHYPAY? will be charged by your provider (not by WHYPAY?) at standard geographic rates (i.e. the same rate as a call to a number beginning 01 or 02).
