Torch Week of Prayer 2020, 1 - 5 June
Posted: 23rd May 2020
Torch House may be currently closed to all but a handful of staff but this year's Week of Prayer is still going ahead, albeit in a virtual capacity.
We hope you will join us in prayer by following the YouTube links below as we look to praise the Lord for the wonderful things he is doing through Torch, and to ask for his help to further meet the spiritual needs of people with sight loss.
Each day covers a different aspect of Torch's structure and work. After an introduction there is a short Bible passage and reflection before covering the prayer needs relating to that particular aspect.

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
