Blurred People
Is this how some of
your church see you?

All of the resources on this page are free to download and use however your church would like to. We hope that they inspire, interest and engage your congregation – some are great for interactive activities, some for raising awareness and others for helping people to understand what it is to be sight loss friendly.

Other resources and materials

Torch produces accessible Christian literature (in large print, audio and braille) including bibles, bible notes, Alpha course notes for example.  

There is an extensive resource library which enables those who are blind or partially sighted to borrow items free of charge, alternatively our accessible literature can be purchased at the same price that one might pay for the original.  It is our vision that sight loss shouldn't be a barrier to Christian life. 

Sight Loss Friendly Church workshop 

Why not sign up for one of our two hour practical sessions looking at how your church can be more welcoming and inclusive for people with sight loss?

Suitable for anyone within the church – please invite everyone!  

A typical workshop will cover:

  • An introduction to sight loss, including the use of simulation spectacles to demonstrate the effects of different eye conditions
  • Discussion about the impact of sight loss on church life
  • An opportunity to practise guiding safely and to experience being guided
  • An opportunity to ask practical questions relevant to your church or group

The Sight Loss Friendly Workshop is available to any church which commits to becoming Sight Loss Friendly at no charge.
