A warm welcome from the Bell Ringers of Holy Trinity, Hurstpierpoint.


We are a small, friendly band of ringers offering a warm welcome to all visitors whether ringers, those wishing to learn to ring, or anyone who would like to visit us in the belfry.

The tower has eight bells with the tenor weighing 12cwt 3qtr 6lb (650kg) in the key of G. More details of the Holy Trinity's bells and their history can be found here. Please use the other navigation buttons at the top of this page to find other details. Hurstpierpoint, in West Sussex (within the Mid-Sussex district) is one of the founding towers of the Sussex County Association of Change Ringers.

We ring on Sundays from 8.45 a.m. for the 9.30 a.m. Family Eucharist. We also have a small band of chimers who man our Ellacombe chiming apparatus, one of the few regularly used examples in the country. They chime at 7.45 a.m. for the 8.00 said Holy Communion service on the first Sunday of each month and for the fortnightly 11.00 a.m. service, as well as for some special Services and events.

Yet another group of people form a handbell ringing band, the church possessing a set of 25 handbells cast by the Whitechapel foundry.

Tower practice night is Thursday evening. Usually it is from 7.30 p.m. - 9.00 p.m. Occasionally we start slightly earlier, from 7 p.m., to accommodate training (see the Practices page). Directions to the ringing chamber are on the Practices page. Ringing for other events, including visiting bands, is by prior arrangement.

If you would like more information, to arrange a visit, learn to ring or even just to 'have a go', please contact our Tower Captain or Tower Secretary whose details can be found on the Contacts page.
