Welcome to Sight Loss Friendly Church!

What is a Sight Loss Friendly Church?

A Sight Loss Friendly Church is any church which wants to be more:

  • Aware of sight loss and the issues
  • Accessible for people with sight loss
  • Able to reach out to people with sight loss

Right now by reading this you are helping your church to become more friendly to people with sight loss. 

Why is this important?

We believe that no one should face sight loss alone. All too often people with sight loss can feel left out at church – this is not intentional, but is due to a lack of awareness of the challenges faced by people with sight loss.

Churches may not realise that anyone in their congregation or local community has sight loss. Feeling left out or being unable to access everything necessary to attend or participate often means people stop attending church altogether. They then miss out not just on regular services but on the sense of community, extra activities, and a feeling of human connection. Churches too miss on the gifts of these people.

What shall I do?

Please have a look around our Sight Loss Friendly Church website: it contains lots of helpful resources, tips and ideas to start making your church sight loss friendly – and the best part is, they’re all free to use!

To take the next step towards sight loss friendliness, we would love to have your church join our SLFC network! Network churches will be added to our SLFC map of the UK (coming soon), highlighting all the churches that have made a commitment to sight loss friendliness. Once you’ve registered with our network, you’ll also have access to telephone support, bookable sessions and further resources. Torch may direct clients to your church.

We can only accept sign ups from church leadership or people with authorisation from their church leadership. Why not show your leadership team this page or print it off to share with them? Once you have their approval just come back and fill in the form below!
