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.



At the request of several of our partners and friends, we are planning to take a party to Israel in November 2023. It has been 10 years since our last visit. If you would like to register your interest, please contact Jackie by email – jackie@flametrust.org – or by phone on 01384 232786, and we will send you further details
