ONCE IN A 100 YEARS OR MORE!!
WEDNESDAY 8th NOVEMBER
DEDICATION of the BELLS
in THREE CHURCHES in ONE day!
BISHOP of GLOUCESTER
in a ‘roving service’
Starts at Staunton at 10am, hopefully getting to Corse for 11.15, and to Hartpury at 12.30
These times may get ‘stretched’ but they are a guide.
This is a VERY SPECIAL DAY - perhaps UNIQUE!
where the bells of three towers have been
dedicated on the same day!!
- come to all of it, or join in anywhere
It will be the first time the new bells of Hartpury will
have been heard (except for a practice by the ringers!)
Each of the seven churches in the Benefice has six bells, many of which are hundreds of years old and have been rung for church services, weddings, national celebrations, and remembrance. No doubt you will have heard them ringing, or possibly had them rung for your, or another family members wedding. There is an ongoing project to ensure we have church bells well into the future, and you can read all of the details and updates by following the links below.
