Virtual Taster, Training and Catch Up now available

In these challenging times we are still here for you and those with sight loss in your congregation!

No face to face meetings, no problem, as we now provide three very different virtual experiences using the Zoom platform.

Firstly, if you are wanting to explore what it means to become an SLFC, the benefits of becoming one and how to go about it. Why not sign up to one of our new monthly Taster Sessions. These sessions will last no more than 30 minutes and there will be an opportunity to ask questions of the SLFC team.

The next sessions will take place on:

  • Thursday 18 March at 2:00 PM
  • Tuesday 23 March at 2:00 PM
  • Tuesday 13 April at 2:00 PM
  • Thursday 15 April at 7:00 PM

Secondly, for those already signed up as an SLFC we can now deliver SLFC Training Workshops virtually and you can invite other people from your church or other churches to join you. We can deliver an interactive, fun and engaging workshop just for you.

Thirdly, also for those signed up – join the SLFC team at our new monthly Catch-up Sessions on Zoom. Meet members of the team and ask any questions you may have, find out the latest tips, resources and advice we have to offer and hear stories from other SLFCs.

Sight loss in the UK is a growing concern

We know that churches want to give everyone the best possible welcome – but it can be hard to work out just how to do that.

People with sight loss can easily feel unable to join in with or attend church, leading to a lack of community support and human connection. Becoming part of Sight Loss Friendly Church means that we can help you give the warmest welcome to people with sight loss, making your church a place where they can thrive.

Becoming sight loss friendly

It’s actually very simple for churches to make quite small changes so that everyone feels fully included.

Most of these require only a little thought and preparation. By signing up to become a member of Sight Loss Friendly Church, you’ll gain access to a wealth of help, support and advice from Torch; experts with over 60 year’s experience.

We can help make your ministry accessible.

Be sight loss friendly
