God’s new plans for Torch
Posted: 23rd September 2019
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
We have recently written to all our Torch friends to share important news about how we are developing the future ministry of Torch.
Please do read the full letter from our Chair of Trustees Marilyn Baker and CEO Julia Hyde.
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
