Kinver bell ringers are based at St Peters Church, Kinver, South Staffordshire. We ring the church bells for Sunday services, weddings, funerals, community events, practice nights, regular quarter peals which last around 45 minutes and occasionally full peals which last around 3 hours and are rung by special arrangement.
We ring quarter peals before our Sunday evening services on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month, we ring them sometimes for pleasure, sometimes to consolidate learning and sometimes for special occasions such as birthdays, wedding anniversaries and in memory of someone special. If you would like a quarter peal rung to celebrate your special event or to commemorate someone, please get in touch.
Bell Ringing is a fabulous past time where you meet a whole host of new people, challenge your little grey cells and get some exercise all at the same time, people of all ages and abilities learn to ring, it's not difficult but it will certainly keep you interested. If you ring please feel free to join us for service ringing and practice nights and if you don't ring... PLEASE COME AND LEARN. We follow a programme developed by the Association of Ringing Teachers called “Learning the Ropes”. This programme has five key stages of learning to ring; from the basic techniques of ringing a bell through to ringing as part of a band.
