Welcome

Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I shall not be shaken. My salvation and my honour depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. (Psalm 62:5–8)

Dear Friends

It is lovely to have the opportunity to say hello and introduce myself to everyone. I am Mandy Blow the new Head of Services at Torch. My background over the past 30 years has been managing and shaping services in the charity sector and other organisations and I am so looking forward to serving every one of you at Torch. I would particularly like to invite you to have a voice in helping me and my colleagues shape Torch’s services. You are the reason why Torch exists as we seek to bring Jesus more fully into the lives of blind and partially sighted people and enrich your Christian journey. So please do feel free to contact our Client Services team to let them know what you enjoy about our services and how you feel they could be enhanced even further to connect you with Jesus. We would like you to be at the centre of everything we do and to feel part of this journey with us. We would like to listen to your thoughts and then reflect and take you all with us on a journey of shaping our services for 2021 and beyond.

You may have used various platforms and devices to connect with family and friends over the last 10 months or so. The world we are living in is changing and we at Torch know we need to move with these exciting times of technological advancements. However, rest assured that we will also continue to be there for those people who are happy with things just the way they are.

So this is an invitation for you to be open and honest with us and be at the heart of God’s work that we are doing here at Torch. Your voice can both help to bring about the changes that you may have been waiting for and encourage us to keep going with things you like about what we already do! Some questions about What’s New that you might want to reflect on and feedback to us might be:

So my plea to you is to let us know what is on your heart. We will listen, reflect and collect your thinking and we will report back in the next edition of What’s New about the overall feedback received and our response to that.

Thank you in anticipation of your valued responses!

Mandy Blow, Head of Services

Torch Together

2021 will still be a year of uncertainty on so many levels for each of us individually and also for Torch but please be assured that we are here for you. Although our Torch Together holiday and retreat programme may not be able to take place face to face any time soon we hope that we can still bring something of this to you in different ways. Before Christmas we ran two Torch Together at Home events as a pilot of how we might do something more virtually. We are planning to do further virtual events in the coming months so that you can still enjoy fellowship and have fun together with other Torch friends.

It’s easy to focus on the fact that this pandemic has taken so many things away from us all but we believe that it’s important to also focus on some of the gifts that it has brought to us. We are full of thanks to God that in these uncertain times we still have the means to continue to connect together and meet our friends.

So we invite you to look at our website in the coming months to see what exciting events are planned, plus of course we’ll keep you fully informed in the next What’s New magazine. So let’s draw closer to God together and if you have any thoughts or ideas on this please do let us know!

Book Reviews – A Beautiful Tapestry by Tracy Williamson

We have received some lovely reviews about this book and so please do enjoy reading the comments below. Maybe this could be the next book for you to consider reading?

“What I love about this book is its honesty and sincerity. I really felt I could relate to Marilyn and Tracy as they shared their life’s experiences and the amazing way God brought them to serve him together. Although they have both faced really tough challenges, the book is peppered with humour and compassion. I couldn’t put my braille copy down and confidently ordered 6 print copies as Christmas gifts. My friends are just as enthusiastic as I am about the book, especially those who are searching for answers to life’s important questions. Definitely a book you could prayerfully give to anyone with an open heart and mind. Highly recommend.”

“I very much enjoyed Tracy’s style of writing. I could identify with Marilyn’s boarding school experiences. I think they are an inspiration – that a totally blind person and a hard of hearing person can work so well together. I laughed and cried over their different experiences.”

“Beautiful Tapestry, is a wonderful tonic in the current climate. If you want a book that will inspire, challenge and encourage your faith in God, then this is it. I found my hunger reawakened for bringing something from God’s heart into the lives of all those I meet.

“Marilyn and Tracy describe with honesty, humility and humour, the highs and lows of their lives. God takes Tracy’s traumatic childhood and transforms her into a woman with empathy and compassion for others. I found I got to know Tracy so much better through her openness in writing. I love the way that despite the many setbacks, God is not phased in the slightest by their disabilities, and their ministry together clearly carries God’s profound anointing. His love and acceptance splashes like an overflow from their lives. This gives me excitement and hope for my own future with God. Who knows what He will do next.”

Every Day with Jesus – no longer every day with Selwyn!

In 1965 Selwyn Hughes started his daily Bible reading notes, taking the title from a song he heard sung by an American children’s choir, ‘every day with Jesus is sweeter than the day before’. In the same year, Selwyn also established the ministry CWR, the Crusade for World Revival, based at Waverley Abbey House in Surrey.

Every Day with Jesus notes were insightful and inspirational and soon became the most popular choice amongst new and existing Christians, such that after Selwyn died in 2005 the notes continued to re-use his writings with only minor contemporary adjustments. However, things can’t carry on forever so , at the start of 2021, CWR decided to change their name to Waverley Abbey Resources and also to revamp EDWJ.

The new writer is Micha Jazz, whose name may be familiar as a presenter on Premier Radio (Micha used to be called Michael Morris but changed his name following the death of his wife from multiple sclerosis a few years ago). Like Selwyn, Micha writes with insight and empathy but his style is very different; gone are the long Bible passages and further study options, and in come new sections such as ‘Something to Consider’ and ‘An Action to Take’.

The new EDWJ notes are not to everyone’s taste so at Torch we are taking the opportunity to actively show you what other options are on offer. As part of this, our Easter gift ‘The week that changed the world’ will contain a sample from all the notes over the Easter period in your chosen accessible media – please let client Services know as soon as possible if you’d like to receive the Easter gift by calling 01858 438260.

In the meantime here are the notes we offer direct from Torch House and their available media:

SLFC Update

Hello, I’m Matthew Horspool, Sight Loss Friendly Church Adviser at Torch Trust. I work alongside my colleague Becky Davies, Sight Loss Friendly Church Coordinator, answering questions from churches about how they can best support blind and partially sighted people. We’ve answered many questions since SLFC began, from accessible hymn books to signage.

However, since churches started meeting online last March, there’s been a steady increase in the number of questions we’ve been receiving on topics such as how people with sight loss use computers, which platforms work best with assistive technology, and how to make supporting resources (such as slides) more accessible. There’s been a fairly even balance between small groups and Sunday services (both non-interactive YouTube ones and interactive Zoom ones), and we’ve also had a flurry of enquiries about online fellowship.

In all cases, the principles are the same, but we know that every church is different and not all people with sight loss need the same thing. As such, we always provide a personalised advice service to our churches and we never enforce one approach over another. In one case, having spoken to us, a church decided to post a CD recording of its YouTube service to its members with sight loss. In another case, the member with sight loss had access to a computer, but wasn’t comfortable searching the YouTube website, so the church leader has started emailing her the direct link to the YouTube video. One church was offering a very interactive service on Zoom and people with sight loss were struggling to keep up with who was speaking, so they’ve introduced a policy of asking people to start by saying their name.

We’ve now collected all of this experience and created a new guide entitled ‘Virtual Church Top Tips’. It’s completely free of charge and only a few pages long, perfect for the busy church leader!

If you think your church would benefit from reading the guide, or you’re struggling to access church at the moment and would like us to offer them some advice on your behalf, why not invite them to sign up as a Sight Loss Friendly Church? It’s simple, free, and there are no criteria to meet first. Please ask them to visit our website, www.sightlossfriendlychurch.org.uk, or if you’d prefer, let us know the name of your church and we’ll get in touch with them.

If your church isn’t sure about signing up, we’re offering free Taster sessions on Zoom over the next few months. These only last half an hour and include a short presentation about the benefits of SLFC, followed by an opportunity for churches to ask questions.

We can also offer training via Zoom to church leaders and congregations on all aspects of being Sight Loss Friendly, and we’ve recently launched a monthly Catch Up as well. This session, which lasts half an hour, gathers together Sight Loss Friendly Churches from all parts of the country and from all walks of life. There’s usually a short update or presentation about a Torch service, but the best part is churches talking with one another and sharing their own experiences of supporting people with sight loss. It’s really encouraging to see churches learning from each other and wanting to make things the best they can be.
