Bell Ringers

Who are we?

People who enjoy meeting together in order to ring our church bells.

The members of the ringing team come principally from within our own church family: Jonathan, Rosie, Judith & Richard Portwood, Lesley Hill, John & Stuart Wells, Murray Smith & Bronwyn Smith.

We also have help with our practice nights & ringing for special events from other ringers within the local deanery.

Who are we for?

“Every church shall be provided with at least one bell to ring people to service.”
(Canon ‘F8’ of the Church of England)
