Handbells


The ancient art of handbell ringing adds beauty to our worship on a monthly basis.St. Margaret's Ringers are our volunteer handbell choir. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings in the right transept of the santuary from 6:45 PM to 8:15 PM and occur from September through May.  At St. Margaret's we play a three-octave set of Malmark handbells. 

Highlights include the joining with the Chancel Choir on Christmas Eve and at Easter to enhance the beauty of the worship experience. Anyone who has ever had piano lessons, played an instrument in a school band or orchestra, or sung in any choir will find joining the bell choir fairly easy and a lot of fun. 

The Bell Choir is looking for new ringers. The ideal ringer is an adult who can come most Thursday evenings to practice from 6:45 until 8:00, and who has had musical experience in the past. Handbell ringing is not complicated, but takes a certain level of concentration. It's fun, rewarding and provides light exercise for the upper body.
