Affiliated Groups

In addition to the various groups organised and run by our churches, a number of other organisations are affiliated to us as follows:

Finchampstead’s Handbells Group was formed in September 2005 and meets in the St Mary and St John’s Parish Centre.It is our aim to promote handbell ringing to all ages. Throughout the year we entertain the elderly in care homes and youngsters in schools, and have demonstrated the art of ringing to brownies, cubs, and pre-school groups. We ring a variety of music, specially adapted for handbells; from nursery rhymes, to hymns, classics and modern popular music.Progression for the individual can be to join SERBO (the South East Regional Bell Orchestra), or as a team the opportunity to play, for example, at the Festival Service, Guildford Cathedral. The team takes part in, and hosts, massed rallies with handbell ringers from around the South East area in particular.Please visit our website at
