Did you know church bell ringing is a performing art? Church bell ringers practice and rehearse together for all church services, they even have competitions and sometimes will ring for the joy and love of ringing together as a team.
Sadly the Covid-19 pandemic has negatively impacted bell ringing, with churches closed and ceremonies postponed. Often there would be several bell ringers all pulling together, but sadly this Christmas St. Luke’s will only have a solo bell ringing on the joy of this year.
Michael Hodge who organisers the bell ringing at St Luke’s Church in Goostrey, explained that this years Christmas service will have only one bell ringing due to Covid-19 restrictions. So keep your ears peeled for the ‘one bell ring’ on Christmas day.
