What’s it like to spend Christmas in bomb-blasted Iraq? Or in the stinking slums of India? Well, Jesus is there too! You can find out how in some moving interviews which are part of an hour-long Christmas broadcast of Reflections, Torch Trust’s radio programme about faith and disability, presented by blind musician Marilyn Baker.
In the programme, being broadcast at 9am on Christmas Day on RNIB’s Insight Radio, producer Rachel Dalby talks to the Rev Canon Dr Andrew White (pictured here), chaplain of St George's Anglican Church in Baghdad, known popularly as ‘the Vicar of Baghdad’.
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
