One in six people are deaf or have some hearing loss and we want to make sure everyone is included in our Churches. One in a thousand people have more severe Deafness and use British Sign language (BSL) as their language of choice.
Hello. My name is Neil Robinson. As an ordained Church of England priest, it is my pleasure to have an opportunity to minister to your needs as deaf or hard-of-hearing people. I am a profoundly deaf BSL user so I am able to communicate with anyone. I am happily married to Helen, who is also profoundly deaf. We both use cochlear implant processors. From time to time, you may need someone to pray for you about certain situations you are experiencing. It is important that you should go to hospital if you are seriously ill or in need of urgent medical assistance.
If there is a need for a funeral service or baptism service in BSL, please contact me. I will go and assist you in any way I can, regardless of time or location. It may take you a while to get to know me better. If you fancy a chance to meet me, I would love to get to know you.
