Holy Cross has 6 bells, the oldest dating back to the 15th century. You can find out more about the bells here.
We are a band of about 12 ringers, including 4 beginners, and we ring before Sunday services, at Christmas and New Year, for weddings, and to mark national occasions.
Bell-ringing is a friendly, team-based community activity, and is a great exercise for both the body and the mind.
We welcome beginners throughout the year so if you’d like to find out more about joining us please get in touch with the Tower Captain, Ian Parker, using the link below.
You can also follow us on Facebook at Bearsted Bells for regular updates.
