Serving the Deaf community

Welcome! You are in the right place to find out about the opportunities for learning and worship. Our Missional Chaplain with the Deaf Community is The Revd Sister Susan Bloomfield, a Deaf Church Army Evangelist.  Susan is also Missional Chaplain in the Diocese of Derby. Susan was commissioned as a Church Army evangelist in 1994 and ordained Priest in June 2014.  Susan is fluent in both English and British Sign Language.  She can conduct weddings, baptisms and funerals in BSL or English for Deaf people.

Advising the hearing community

If you are hearing and wish to include Deaf, deafened or hard-of-hearing people in your church please contact Susan Bloomfield. You may have questions about including Deaf people in baptisms, weddings, funerals or other special occasions. Susan is here to help you with any queries you may have. There are a few churches in the Diocese who have interpreted services once a month or more.
