Torch Trust Celebrates 60 years of Ministry in 2019
Posted: 14th June 2019
Wherever you live in the UK or abroad, we invite you to celebrate our 60th Year. Groups and individuals all over the country are planning and arranging ways to celebrate this amazing milestone.
We are excited as we approach the 60th year of Torch's ministry. We want to do our very best to help you to join with us, wherever you are in the UK; to celebrate and let the light of Torch shine in your local area. We hope to encourage and inspire you to give thanks and commemorate the past 60 years of Torch Trust’s ministry, preparing our hearts and hands for the years ahead as we ask God to lead and guide us.
Let's be open and creative – Celebration ideas
With the Torch values of Christ-centred, People-focussed, Open and Creative, we really want you to celebrate the 60th year and take the opportunity to be open to invite people who know little of the work of Torch and to invite your local churches to know more of the work of Torch. We would love you to be as creative as possible in the ways you choose to celebrate; from a coffee morning, to special prayer hour, fellowship meeting, open garden, barbeque, sponsored bungie jump or walking the Great Wall of China! Any event that celebrates, raises awareness and, if you wish, provides an opportunity to fundraise would be a perfect combination.
Torch House will be holding a coffee morning on 22nd June 10am until 2 pm,
HRC have an afternoon tea with music for local residents and groups from 2pm until 5pm.
If you are local or able to travel to those events, we would love to welcome you there or maybe consider holding your own event? If you haven't already received one of our celebration packs, helping you to organise your event, please get in touch email:email@example.com or give us a call.
Please join us and pray. If you visit Torch Trust on Facebook, you can join us at Torch House from 1:30pm 'til 2pm on Saturday 22nd June.
Torch in brief
Torch Trust's aims can be summarised as enabling people with sight loss to discover Christian faith and lead fulfilling Christian lives.
Towards this end we provide Christian resources and activities for blind and partially sighted people worldwide. Our services are offered to all who experience sight loss, of all faiths or none, and including those with sight loss who have other disabilities.
Among our services, Torch provides Christian literature, including a free lending library and a range of magazines, in various accessible formats. We also promote Christian fellowship through 110 local Groups across the UK. Torch also runs a varied programme of holidays at our own holiday centre and at other venues around the UK and abroad. Our international arm involves Torch working in partnership with others and being involved in various projects, especially in Malawi which in turn serves the needs of blind and partially sighted people in various other African countries.
Torch Trust has a driving vision for people with sight loss, wherever in the world they may live. Our seven-fold charter is that every blind or partially sighted person may have the opportunity to:
- Explore Christian faith and discover Jesus
- Grow as a Christian
- Enjoy a fulfilling devotional life
- Access Christian activities and resources they need
- Join a church of their choice
- Develop their invaluable God-given gifting
- Contribute to the life of the church
