Tune in to worship a living Saviour!

Tune in to worship a living Saviour! Picture

‘We don’t worship a dead man – but a living Saviour!’ says Marilyn Baker, blind presenter of the hour-long Reflections radio programme going out this Sunday, Easter Day! The Easter special is packed with interviews, readings and music. Included are thoughts from a woman who works with blind people in Afghanistan and describes a special sunrise over the city of Kabul; a blind woman who recalls a trip to Jerusalem and the emotion of visiting the Garden Tomb; and a blind Nigerian man who found true healing at the cross of Christ. There’s also a dramatised reading based on the Bible account of the events of Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

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
