SWalesBAReaching people through British Sign Language


Reaching people in their first language in Cardiff, Betty and Jonathan Bosman are starting services in British Sign Language (BSL).

BosmansWhen we think of reaching people in their first language here in South Wales we're normally thinking about Welsh speakers, but for the deaf community their first language is British Sign Language. Although some churches have interpreters available in services, very few have services in BSL. For a number of years Woodville Baptist Church in Cardiff have had interpreters at most services and the occasional BSL preacher with interpretation for hearing people. With the help of a Mission Project Grant they will be holding monthly services for deaf people, led by deaf people, followed by a buffet giving the opportunity for fellowship and further discussion. They're also planning a couple of outreach weekends each year.

As members of the deaf community themselves, Betty and Jonathan desire to make God's word accessible to deaf people in the language of their hearts.
