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.
