Community - Get Involved
We recently spoke to a number of people about what the organisations they represent will be doing to celebrate 2011.
Sam Cairns - Museums, Libraries, Archives, London.
Sally Gallimore - BSL Bible Translation Project
I am here today as a representative of the British Sign Language Bible Translation Project.
I am very interested in the work of the King James Bible Trust especially as they plan to celebrate 400 years of the existence of the English translation of the Bible which came to existence under the command of King James who had wanted the people of England to read the Bible for themselves.
Deaf people want to have equality of access to the Bible too in their own language, so in 2011 the British Sign Language Bible Translation Project team hope to launch the BSL translation of the Gospel of Mark during the national celebrations of the 400th anniversary of KJV of the English Bible.
