There are eight bells in East Harling Church tower and they are rung before the 9.45 a.m. Sunday Service. We also meet for practices on Wednesday evenings at 7.30. Ringing is also arranged at other times for special events, such as weddings.
We are always looking for people interested in learning to ring. We are prepared to teach people of any age (our ringers now range from the mid-teens to over 70); children can start from about 10 years of age.
To read about the history of our bells go to the Church History section
To discover more about ringing in general go to the website of the Central Council of Church Bellringers www.cccbr.org.uk.
The group responsible for keeping the East Harling church clean are organised into 6 teams, each with 5/6 members. Each team is then responsible for 2 consecutive weeks.
Any queries regarding the rota or church cleaning in general, plus offers of help to Anne Slater 01953 717653 or Eleanor Doyle 01953 718304
This is the rota for 2012.
The objectives of the Events team are to provide “social glue” for our community in East Harling and also to assist in fund raising for the church, such funds to be used for whatever purpose the church requires.
We have a regular coffee morning on the first Saturday of each month, with a standing request for people to bake cakes, donate garden produce or donate books for the bookstall.
For the Jubilee celebrations we provided cream teas and had the bookstall for browsing.
