Sports Chaplains provide pastoral and spiritual care to professional and amateur sportswomen and men. In the Diocese of Liverpool we have chaplains supporting football and rugby teams.
The deaf chaplaincy offers a full range of ministry in British Sign Language (BSL) to approximately 2000 Deaf BSL users, of any faith or none, throughout the diocese, through the Deaf Centres, in parish churches and the cathedral.
WHAT DOES THE CHAPLAINCY OFFER
Access via BSL (British Sign Language) to worship, occasional offices, pastoral care and discipleship.
WHO IS THE CHAPLAINCY FOR
The chaplaincy is for deaf, BSL using people of all ages and their families (whether deaf or hearing) who live in the diocese or who attend one of the deaf centres. People who are learning BSL are also welcome to get involved.
All our services are or can be made accessible, through speech, or written English for example, for people who do not use BSL but would like to attend.
HOW DO PEOPLE ACCESS THE CHAPLAINS
The chaplains are based in the Deaf centres (Liverpool, St Helens, Southport, Wigan and Warrington) and in some parishes and the cathedral which offer regular BSL interpreted services. Just turn up at any service, contact any of the Deaf centres via their websites or the diocesan Deaf Ministry Team via St James House.
