We are proud to own a fully restored peel of 6 bells (15-0-12 tenor) within our bell tower.
We traditionally ring the chiming bell, which is connected to the tower from inside church, as a call to worship before services, and 6 times during the consecration of the sacraments.
We do not have our own ringing team these days and therefore we rely on experienced ringers to visit our tower for ringing practice or to play for weddings, heritage open days, anniversaries and any other special events. This helps to ensure that our bells remain in full working order for many years to come. Bell ringers for weddings are usually paid, however other occasions are more likely to be non-paid.
For bell ringing practice sessions we are happy to accommodate in the afternoon or evenings.
You are also welcome to use one of our community rooms afterwards to relax and enjoy a brew and a chat with your team.
If you would like to visit with your team simply contact us via our online enquiry form and we will be happy to book you in.

If you are interested in getting involved in campanology, but not currently a member of a ringing team then we advise getting in touch with 'LACR' directly.
They will be able to advise you of the nearest teams and training sessions.
