Thursdays from about 8.00 pm until 9.30 pm.


On the Third Thursday in each month, we are joined by colleagues from other towers which provides an opportunity to do some more adventurous ringing than we can manage with our own band.


Visiting Ringers are very welcome to join us for both Sunday Service ringing and Practice Nights.


Learning to Ring


New ringers are always welcome. Come along to the church tower on a Thursday evening and see what is involved. (Please do not open the tower door while the bells are actually ringing). There is a knack in ringing bells which takes a little time to master, but once learnt opens up endless possibilities to develop a great tradition and you will be made very welcome in virtually all of the 5000 or so rings of bells in this country and beyond.


Details of the Bells


To the existing five bells in this tower, three trebles were added, the tenor recast and all rehung with new fittings in a metal frame by Gillett & Johnston. Rededicated on 15th December 1934 by The Rt. Rev. The Lord Bishop of Woolwich.


The five bells were rehung, the tenor recast and three trebles added by Public subscription Christmas 1934 - Vicar John Arthur Owen BA. The bells are mounted on ball bearings in a two level steel frame with the 5, 7 and 8 being on the lower level.


The fund for the restoration and augmentation of these bells was originated by Emily M. Chapman.
