Tolling of Church bell (on YouTube at https://youtu.be/oridPxLn5J0)

31 Jan 2021, 3 p.m.
<div>Sadly, this week has seen us pass the 100,000 Covid-19 deaths count (and there will be many more whose deaths haven’t been counted.) To mark this tragedy we will be tolling the church bell 100 times at 10.30am on Sunday 31st January and saying a prayer. This will be included in ‘zoom’ after the 9.30am service.</div><div>Also, the last Sunday in January has become “Bell Ringers’ Sunday” to mark the contribution they make to our ministry and mission on bells large and small and to encourage people to take up a new ‘sport’ near the beginning of the year. The latter will have to wait for now, but ringer Catherine Pinnock will read one of the Bible Lessons and Sarah Vernon, Tower Captain, will speak briefly about ringing after the tolling, which will also include 6 tolls for each decade of former Tower Captain, Andy Carr’s life. He died the last Monday in January 2019.</div>
