crossline is a confidential, Christian staffed help-line established in Hull and the surrounding area. It is part of the ministry of evangelical churches and it seeks to be a representative of the diversity of evangelical witness. crossline is different from other help-lines because of the specifically Christian content of its listening, caring and sharing. Our aim is to be available to listen and to pray with those who call to show Jesus's love and compassion for them and to provide a listening, compassionate ear whatever their problem. Face to face counselling can be arranged with trained counsellors if appropriate or callers can be put in touch with other specialist agencies. The work of crossline is overseen by a board of trustees drawn from evangelical churches in the area.
All volunteers are committed Christians who have completed an intensive listener training course with some having approved training in counselling.
