Welcome to Word of Hands’ Website, Birmingham

Word of Hands is a church open to the Deaf Community, BSL users, and any hearing person who wants a church with a difference!  We all share the same experience, the love of God in a united family of Christ.  The Bible teaches that the Church body has many parts but they are all part of the same whole; in life this can be language, culture whether you are Deaf or Hearing; we worship together as a whole.

Word of Hands services are led in British Sign Language with an English voice-over.  The worship is unique, integrating Deaf and Hearing people using DVDs with uplifting music, subtitles and Deaf Signed Worship leaders.

We also provide LightHouse Kids; Jesus said to the little children, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14, NIV).  We totally believe this and see children as an important part of our church.  Our kids groups are for children 0-14 years old.  Creche staff also use BSL to make sure that Deaf and Hearing children are welcome and can be part of our groups.

We are on a journey that brings us all, Deaf or Hearing, to the love of Christ, fellowshipping together and obeying His teaching.

Come and join us and you will experience the love of God, taught in a relevant way by a welcoming church.

Word of Hands is a ministry of Riverside Church, a member of the Evangelical Alliance.
