Welcome to Open Ears
Welcome to Open Ears, we are glad you have found us.
Open Ears is Christian charity (Registered Charity 1181896) whose aim is to provide friendship and accessible Christian fellowship for people of all denominations. Open Ears is for people with various degrees of impaired hearing, 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 informative literature alongside a quarterly magazine called Hearing Eye.
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.
