The bells date from the 15th Century to 1910.

The church is Grade 2 listed and the tower is 15th Century and has ironstone walls.

The ringing chamber is on the ground floor.

WHEN DO WE RING?

Sunday 9am - 9.30am for morning service

We also ring for special occasions such as weddings, church festivals and royal events.

PRACTICE NIGHT

Thursday 7pm - 8.30pm

WHY DO WE DO IT?

  •   A fun sociable activity

  •   A challenge and a team activity

  •   A traditional skill and a living heritage

  •   Ringing has something for everyone

  •   Great physical exercise for mind and body

  •   Suitable for all ages - why not come along as a family

  •   No need to be musical though a sense of rhythm helps

  Practice is often followed by refreshment in the local pub

 

LEARN TO RING

At Lytchett Minster we are always looking for people to join our enthusiastic and friendly band of bell ringers. If you have ever thought you might like to have a go at ringing, then this is the perfect opportunity to take up this unique and fascinating activity. Some consider ringing to be their contribution to church life, others do it for pure pleasure and the company it brings.

Please come along to a practice night and see what happens.
