"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 both deaf and hearing interpreters available who use BSL so those that are deaf can hear the Word of God. 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.

Leicester Deaf Action Group

The LDAG is a new user led organisation providing an alternative choice for Deaf people in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.

‘Open House’, is a great place to meet on a Monday. The session runs from 11:30am at No.12 next door to the LDAG 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. This also runs alongside 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.
