Welcome To Flame Trust


Chaplaincy training - 1Friday 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 Chaplaincy training 2together 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.

Chaplaincy training 3Two 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.

OFFICE MOVE – yet again!

For a variety of reasons, it is likely that we are going to move out of the office facility that we have occupied since March 1st 2020.

However, our postal address – Flame Trust, P.O.Box 15, Dudley, West Midlands DY1 1YQ will be unchanged.  If the telephone number changes, you would be re-directed.

Again, watch this space for further information as 2021 unfolds.

Praise Gathering logo

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.
