Welcome to St Mary's Handbell and Chime Choir Page.
We are a group of twelve enthusiasts who enjoy making music for church and other related occasions. Whilst none of us are musicians we nevertheless make up a committed group. The emphasis is fun and fellowship.
Beginning some five years ago, we started by using the church’s set of handbells but more recently have purchased our own set of hand chimes which is more portable and durable and have developed the group by playing these.
We play a range of hymns, carols and tunes using a number system rather than music notation and have been invited to perform and contribute to worship at times throughout the year. Some examples are St Mary’s Christmas Carol Service, Family Services, Whitton and Rochford Evensongs, fundraising concerts, The Old Rectory, Ludlow MIND group, Open Door and many more.
We are always open to invitations to play and to adults who may wish to join the group. If interested please contact Annette Bryant 01584 811842 or Click here to email us.
