Bell Ringing

About Us

New bells lined up on church path before installationAll Saints has a ring of eight bells, cast and installed in 2019, replacing one which had become difficult to maintain.

The ringing takes place from a raised ringing chamber which is open with excellent views down the aisle of the church. That means that when the bells are being rung, those in the church can look up and watch the bell ringers in action.

The bells are regularly rung to call the parish to worship twice on Sunday, before one of the two morning services and before the evening service. In addition, there is a practice night on Tuesday.

It can be arranged for the bells to be rung for weddings, funerals or other occasion.

The bells are also rung along with those across the country to commemorate significant public events. They were most recently rung following the coronation of King Charles III on 6th May 2023. We also ring in support of various Lindfield village community events such as Village Day.

Currently, there are approximately nine ringers who are members of the All Saints tower, regularly joined by others who are members of nearby towers.

The ringers cover a range of age and experience. We welcome new faces at any time of year to join us to either get a taste of bell ringing, to rediscover it after a break or for those bell ringers new to the area looking for a friendly tower to share and practice their skill.

The bells are available for visiting ringers, however, being an active church with many events taking place, we are sometimes unable to meet the preferred dates and times of visitors.
