Bell Ringing

At Hewelsfield the Bells are rung from the chancel and so can be watched by the congregation

Hewelsfield and St Briavels both have excellent peals of bells and we are always looking for more volunteers to enable us to ring more regularly on Sundays. Practices are from 7.15 till 9 pm on most Wednesdays (2nd and 4th in the month at Hewelsfield, 1st and 3rd St Briavels, 5th peripatetic).


Great Britain and its former colonies are unique in the world in ringing church bells full-circle and employing change-ringing methods. No strength needed, just expertise which comes with tuition and time. Children have to be at least 10 years old (we have CRB registration procedure), and youngsters up to 75 are very welcome to have a try-out and take on a new and fascinating interest based on rhythm, co-ordination and simple maths!


Ring David Shoubridge on 01594 531465 or just turn up at a Practice to watch.


The bells at Hewelsfield were refurbished in 2007
