Historical Peal Rung on Wednesday Evening

Last Wednesday (21st October) our bellringers rang a peal of 5,040 changes which took 2 hours and 43 minutes. Our back and heavier bells came from St Mary and St Nicholas Church at Wilton in Wiltshire, UK. This church was opened on the 21st October 1845 and replaced an older church from which our bells were removed from and hung in the new church. 100 years later the first peal was rung on these bells to celebrate the centenary of the new and present church at Wilton. We have celebrated this peal’s 70th Anniversary with a very historic peal on our back bells, being a first peal for 3 ringers (Julia Stewart, Pete Corlis and Jonathan Laurence), a first inside of the method (Reverse Canterbury Place Minimus) for Margaret Weatherby and a first as conductor for Robert Weatherby Snr.   This is the second peal rung by local ringers in our tower.


No Bells ringing this Sunday as all our ringers are away. Robert and Margaret Weatherby are at St Paul’s Cathedral Wellington participating at their Bellringing Festival



CALL the community to worship

Make us LISTEN to their message

As they ANNOUNCE a function – marriage, funeral

They call us in PRAYER

and often ring for a PURPOSE such as ANZAC DAY

There are most commonly EIGHT of them (as at St Andrew’s)

But most importantly they REMIND us of the Gospel

We pause to offer prayers and thanksgiving that we bring to our celebration of Holy Communion.



O God,

you give light to the blind and comfort to the sorrowing,

and in your Son you have given us

a High Priest who has offered the true sacrifice for us

and yet can sympathise with us in our weakness:

hear the cry of your people

and lead us home to our true country,

where with your Son and the Holy Spirit

who live and reign, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen


Prayer points:

Give thanks for the faithful people of our parish.

All our ministries with children and youth.

Wise stewardship of our resources.
