Welcome To Flame Trust
TRAINING OUR VOLUNTEER CHAPLAINS
Friday September 3rd, and Kinver High School was the venue for another of our Chaplaincy training days. With ever growing demand for our services, Gerry Denston – commissioned by Flame Trust to head up this ministry, put together a very full and informative programme as we anticipated the commencement of the new school term. Covid has produced an increase in requests for support and input, and Flame is currently assessing how the Chaplaincy ministry can be grown in order to meet demand, and provide appropriate support for staff and students, via the school networks.
Two very successful Sixth Form Conferences have already been organised, with one being repeated for other Year groups, and we are now researching the possibility of providing something similar for another Academy network.
Spring Break 2022
As Dave intimated in his News Letter, research is being conducted for a possible break next Spring with all the necessary precautions and guarantees in place in the light of the Pandemic. Malta, Holland - with visits to the Floriade exhibition and the legendary Keukenhof Park for the display of tulips - and Madeira (always a firm favourite) are on the agenda. Please let us know if you might be interested and which destination ‘floats your boat’!! Contact us here or on 01384 232786

PRAISE GATHERING VIRTUAL CHOIR
Here at Flame, we are very supportive of Praise Gathering in Scotland – an amazing ensemble of church folk drawn from many churches, under the musical direction of good friend and colleague IAN WATSON.
Their latest project in ‘lockdown’ is a virtual choir rendering of ‘It is Well with my Soul’ – given a Celtic feel. Click on the image below to watch.
Look closely…and you might also spot someone else you know.

Andy Palmer's Memorial Garden
Luis Palau: 1934 - 2021
Dave has contributed his memories and condolences below to the memorial web site here
"I had the rare privilege of working with Luis for over 20 years, from the preparatory meetings for Eurofest in the 70s, to sharing in his crusades across the Uk, including Mission to London at QPR, Spring Harvest and in the States. A remarkable, gifted evangelist...full of enthusiasm with passionate expression of faith. Many memories, but in all of the changing scenes of ministry, Luis was faithful and consistent in being obedient to his calling, and encouraging others to do the same. My heart goes out to Pat, Keith, Kevin and Andrew as they take on the ministry baton of a wonderful man who walked closely with the Lord and kept in step with the people".
