Bell ringing

The bells of Glossop feature prominently in the church records. They were rung for both religious and secular occasions and still are today. Since the tower was rebuilt in 1854, there are 8 bells, which were  rehung in 1880 and recast in 1923 by Gillet and Johnson of Croydon. The church clock had no face until 1740 but it's bell was the timekeeper of the whole town! The present clock was the gift of Daniel Wood

During the year there are a number of groups of bell ringers visiting the church, from all over the country.

Traditionally the bells are rung to call the faithful to prayer. Bells are also rung  in celebration of weddings, coronations and royal  births or to warn of wars, invasions and disasters.

We ring the bells at 10.00 for the Sunday morning service at 10.30 and for weddings and funerals 

Our  practices are on Thursday evenings 7pm - 8pm We welcome new bell ringers whether experienced or a complete novice

If you are interested in "having a go" then just turn up on a Thursday evening or ring Derek Glossop 861644
