Watch again our Thanksgiving!
Posted: 27th September 2021
Each year, we love to take the opportunity to give thanks to God for his faithfulness to us and for the lives that have been changed by encountering God through Torch. After the success of last year’s event, where over 300 people joined us via the internet, we held this year’s Thanksgiving event online. This gave the opportunity for people all over the UK and the world to join us in this uplifting event as a Torch Community.
It was held on Saturday 25th September at 2pm.
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
