Deaf ministry

Since September 2004, Deaf people have been involved with Riverside Church and have experienced a positive attitude and great welcome. Each week since 2004, Riverside has provided a qualified Sign Language Interpreter at one of their Sunday morning services and has always been keen to make sure that Deaf people can access all parts of the service. In January 2006 the Home Group for Deaf people and BSL Users was set up and we have run two successful BSL Alpha Courses in 2007 and 2008 and 2009. Two Deaf people became Christians this year through the Alpha Course. 1 Corinthians 12:12 “The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up one body.” This is what we see in Riverside: Deaf and Hearing people have differences, but we work together as one community, serving Jesus in one spirit.
