Open Ears is a Christian charity (Registered Charity 1181896) whose aim is to provide accessible Christian fellowship for people of all denominations, and to support anyone affected by hearing loss.
Open Ears is for people with any degree of hearing loss -from mild to profound – their family, friends and churches. Members mainly (but not exclusively) communicate orally, assisted by hearing aids or cochlear implants and lip-reading.
Open Ears offers fellowship, Bible teaching, prayer support and pastoral care; Speech to Text is a vital part of enabling all participants to feel comfortable and on an equal footing at all our online and in person events, and BSL interpretation can also be provided at our in-person events.
Open Ears produces ‘Hearing Eye’, a quarterly magazine for members and can signpost to helpful information and other organisations. Past copies of ‘Hearing Eye’ can be viewed by clicking on the ‘Magazine’ tab.
Open Ears Trustees and managing Committee are all volunteers. The charity is funded entirely by voluntary donations and may, at the discretion of the Trustees, give a proportion of its donated income to specified Christian charities and other organisations involved in supporting people with hearing loss.
