We are a small team of Bell Ringers at St. Mary’s Church, Eversley and would love more people to join us!

There are 6 bells at St. Mary's Church which we ring on Sunday morning from 10.30 to 11.00am for the 11:00am service.
We also ring for weddings and other church services, and have a social outing to visit and ring at other towers once a year.
We meet on Wednesday evenings for our Practice Night from 8.00pm until 9.30pm. Practice nights are very informal – you come when you can and stay for as long as you want. A trip to the local pub to round off the evening is not uncommon!
On a Practice Night absolute beginners learn how to handle a bell on their own under the close supervision of an experienced ringer. Those that can ring get a chance to ring their bell with others, and try their hand at ringing different methods where the bells swap places in a set order. These methods range from the very simple to the very difficult!

One of the great things about bell ringing is that you can progress as far as you want to. It is a brilliant way of keeping the brain working. With a bit of practice anyone from the age of 11 to 80 can learn to ring.
If you are interested in joining us, do come along any Wednesday evening from 8.00 pm or see us on a Sunday morning.
