Midlands Christian Fellowship
Bob and Gabi McFarland pastor the Midlands Christian Fellowship. There is a service for the deaf at All Nations Centre one Sunday a month at 3:00pm. Each Sunday at 10:30am we attend the hearing church for worship and hearing the Word of God, both of which are interpreted for God wants us to serve among the Body of Jesus. There is also a deaf cell group meeting in the locality mid-week. Click here to visit the MCF website
“Bob is originally from Belfast, Northern Ireland. God called him to move to England, where he met and married Gabi, who is originally from Germany. They are both deaf and communicate in British Sign Language. They are pastors of Midlands Christian Fellowship involving with the church ministry to deaf and hearing people with the help of interpreters. They also are responsible for pastoral work among other deaf groups in the Midlands, UK and abroad. Bob is an international speaker. Their passion is to see deaf people released into their full relationship with Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit.”
There are interpreters available for those who are deaf and use BSL so those that are deaf are able to hear the Word of God. Deaf worshippers lead as well as hearing worshippers in front of a semi circle of people. There are also monthly deaf services led by deaf speakers using BSL. You are welcome to join with those who are interested in hearing the Word of God in BSL.
BSL courses are also run at All Nations Centre for those wanting to learn or improve their BSL.

‘Open House’, is a great place to meet on a Monday. The session runs from 10am to 12.30pm at the All Nations Centre next door to our office. The session is run by the LDAG volunteers and is an opportunity for Deaf people and hearing friends to get together for a chat, have a cuppa and this runs along side a free letter translation and information service. The open house is also a great opportunity for people just to come along and have a chat and practice their BSL skills. Please take a look at there website for further info. www.ldag.org.uk
