We call our parishioner to church by ringing our bells. As we have an active team
that rarely miss a service, I haven't got many video's of us ringing. However I have
found a video that was recorded of us ringing for the Olympics in 2012. So if you
are missing the sound of our bells, here they are to start Geoff Smith's service.
(This week we are again including some hymns!
With the help of Trevor and Youtube we are hoping to include some hymns –
so turn the sound on! Hope you found these worthwhile last week)
