Torch Community Prayer Time

Posted: 17th June 2021 by Mandy Blow

Has been extended to the end of July!

As you may be aware, with all the ongoing restrictions on our movements and gathering, we decided to hold a weekly time of prayer and fellowship on Zoom which has been open to all of our Torch friends – clients and supporters. This is a time when we have come together as a Torch community to pray for the work of Torch and also for each other. These weekly sessions will have been running for 3 months come the end of June but due to the lockdown easing being delayed we have decided to extend these sessions to the end of July.

So please do feel free to join us as we pray and share together! The Zoom sign-in details will be the same as the Lent course. If you haven’t had the link, please contact Client Services using or on 01858 438 260.

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 over 60 local Groups across the UK. 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
