St Mary’s Southampton has recently been taken over by Holy Trinity Brompton and the bells have been silent for over 6 months now while remodelling work has been done to the church. The church building works are now almost complete, and the new church team are settling in.
Most wonderfully the church have asked us to ring for both Remembrance Sunday 11/11 and also for a special service, the Civic launch of the church, on Monday 12th November.
It would be fantastic to be able to have all 10 glorious bells ringing out, so the new church team can hear them in their full glory. Hopefully ringing all 10 bells for both occasions will inspire the church to allow us to keep ringing regularly again. Given the timings of both sets of ringing, we might need to rely on some extra help, so…
If anyone in the District/Guild/Local Area is available, and could join us for ringing on either occasion it would be greatly appreciated. I really do believe this will be a fundamental step in getting those wonderful bells ringing again!
The ringing is;
St Mary’s, Southampton
Sunday 11th November: 14:30 – 15:15
Monday 12th November: 18:30 – 19:00
Please let me know if you are available to help, it would be greatly appreciated.
