The St. Luke’s Bell Ringers are a dedicated, multi-generational group of musicians who enjoy the beautiful sound of hand bells.
In 2013, a proper Bell Choir was formed and it has become a regular feature of our worship. About once a month, positioned in Anne’s Chapel, it plays at the 9:30 service on Sundays.
Practices are held in the Bell Tower on Tuesday evenings at 7:30. The Bell Choir rings a three octave set of Schulmerich bells and a recently acquired three octave set of Malmark Handchimes.
In addition, it has raised money for new music racks, mallets, and new gloves, and it is already beginning to purchase a fourth octave of its hand bells. The Bell Choir is dynamic, but relaxed. While the bell ringers work hard to create lovely music for worship, they also enjoy the process.
