If you would like to see the bells or to try your hand at 'ringing the changes' call at the tower any Monday evening between 7.00 and 7.30pm.

We can show you how to do it. In return we ask that you help to ring the bells on Sunday mornings for half a hour.

Nativity Star shines brightly
The Nativity Star was back in place from the beginning of Advent. Sadly water managed to creep into the electrics and the 'star volunteers' had to lower it to the ground for urgent repairs.
Thanks to the speedy response by A&M Solutions on Longbeck Road, it was back in place withing a few days. Thanks also to the crew who spent several hours lowering it and raising it back up the tower. And sdpecial thanks to everyone who left donations in church towards the £400 cost of the repairs.
The star will be illuminated unti 12th Night,- January 6th.
