St Stephen's Bell Ringers
St Stephen’s Bell Ringers

St Stephen’s has a ring of eight bells and these are rung regularly before the Sung Eucharist and Choral Evensong on a Sunday, and other Church occasions and festivals.

The Tower caters for all ages and varying abilities and leadership skills are encouraged.

New recruits are warmly welcomed, along with the oft-changing population of experienced “ringing” students, who come to St. Stephen’s from educational establishments within the City from time to time.
