Ian Frith

Ian Frith, one of the founding members of Flame Trust, passed away on 27th November after a period of ill health. Ian was a very close friend of Dave Pope, and was active and supportive in the breadth of Flame’s ministries. He had been unwell for a number of months, but was admitted to hospital where he died peacefully.  Our thoughts and prayers are with his dear wife Marjorie who at present is in a nursing home, and also with his three children, Paul, Elizabeth and Helen, and all of the wider family and friends.

Ian will be sadly missed, and Dave remembers a recent conversation when Ian had been invited to Calin’s British Citizenship ceremony that is to be held in Dudley on 14th December. Ian wanted to be there, but a few days before he died he called Dave to suggest that he invited someone else in his place, as he might not be well enough to attend. He concluded his conversation simply by saying, ‘but I shall be there in spirit’. His words are even more poignant in the light of his homecall.

‘Promoted to glory – good and faithful servant’. Thank you Ian for all the encouragement, support and input over so many years. Words are inadequate to express our grief and sadness. Be assured that your legacy will live on in our hearts and minds. You will never be forgotten.

A thanksgiving service for Ian’s life will be held at Sutton Coldfield Baptist Church on 19th December at 2pm, and an invitation is extended to all those who knew Ian to attend. 

Ian was a passionate supporter of the Flame Playground Projects in Romania. If you would like to find out more about the completed playgrounds, and would consider making a donation to future projects, you will find more details here.


Dave is now entering his 53rd year of ministry.  It all started in 1970 when he joined a mission organisation known as MWE.  Since then, he went on to be the founder of Saltmine, and participated in many global events, working with many agencies including the Billy Graham organisation and the Luis Palau Association.

Romania 3 - 8SHOUTS OF JOY

This was the title of an album that Dave Pope recorded in the nineties with the worship leader Don Moen, but it perfectly describes the sound coming from Flame’s new playground construction in Valea Seaca, Romania.

Carefully planned and directed by Calin Rezmuves, Flame’s Practical Assistant, and using the building expertise of friends in Habitat for Humanity, the playground was delivered on time and on budget.
