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 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 7.45a.m. for the early Sunday 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.
