Thy Kingdom Come: Resources in Braille through Torch

Posted: 4th May 2021 by Keren Mallinson

Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement that invites Christians around the world to pray for more people to come to know Jesus. It started within the Church of England but has grown hugely since its start in 2016 to involve many denominations and believers in well over 150 countries. Thy Kingdom Come runs from Ascension to Pentecost, 13th May to 23rd May.

Thy Kingdom Come provides resources to support prayer. This year, for the first time, we will be producing a braille version of the popular Prayer Journal. If you would like to receive a copy, please contact Client Services by calling 01858 438260 or email It is free of charge.

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
