St Matthew's Church Bellringers

St Matthew's has an enthusiastic and active team of ringers.
We have a weekly practice on a Wednesday evening, from 7.00-8.30pm and visiting ringers are very welcome. Entry is via the main (south) door, but in case you arrive after 7.00pm and the door is locked, please go to the ringing room window on the West side of the tower and call up.

Sunday ringing is for our main Morning Service from 10.30-11.00am.

Ringers from St Matthew's have strong links and support the ringing at other local churches, including Christ Church Burbage, St George New Mills and St Mary the Virgin Disley.
If you would like to learn to ring our bells, or for any other questions about the bells, please contact Reg Radford on 01663-750775 or by email to
