Week of Prayer & Torch Thanksgiving 2020
Posted: 23rd May 2020
We are delighted to invite you to join with us for this year’s Week of Prayer and annual Thanksgiving. Whilst we are unable to gather in person, we will be able to share and interact through various ways, thus making these precious times available to all.
More than ever Torch needs prayer, so please we ask you to commit a little time each day to remember the ministry of Torch via our Week of Prayer.
As our 60th anniversary year comes to an end we have so much to be thankful for, but also, it’s vital we look around and ahead to the next chapter of God’s calling. And so, our Thanksgiving set for Saturday June 6th will be a time of praise, sharing and call to action.
Please see below the various options you can select from to be a part of the Torch family over the next couple of weeks.

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
