Bellringers

The Cathedral has a ring of 12 bells that were cast in 1913.

The Cathedral has a team of some six bellringers, who, augmented by other local ringers, ring for Sunday services, weddings and special occasions.

The bell ringers are currently unable to ring together although two people from the same household have been ringing before the livestreamed service on a Sunday morning.

Monday night is practice night, 7.45pm to 9.15pm, and practices will resume once allowed with newcomers always welcome.

Because of Public Holidays and occasional special services, visitors are always advised to check that the practice is taking place.

The ringers can be contacted by email through the Cathedral Office.  Alternatively follow them on Twitter: @BellsChelmsford
