Christchurch

Welcome, From The Christchurch Priory Bellringers

We are a band of approximately 25 ringers who provide ringing for morning and evening services at the Priory, as well as weddings and other special occasions. We practice on a Monday evening, 7.30 to 9.00pm. All ringing is listed on our calendar. We sometimes attempt a Quarter Peal before Evensong -please check the calendar as there is no general ringing on those occasions.

We have 12 bells (plus a flat 6) which makes for a number of choices – as well as 12 bells, we also ring the light 6, light 8 or back 8, or the back 10.

Which Bell is Which at Christchurch Priory (Rosemary Rogers)This choice of two number 6 bells also causes endless entertainment and shouts of “wrong bell!”, even for those of us who have rung for several years at the Priory. This explanation of which six to use with which configuration of bells, has been kindly provided by Rosemary Rogers.

The oldest bells were cast around 1370 – for a full history please click here
