Promoting and Supporting Bellringing in Sussex

The Sussex County Association of Change Ringers was founded on 24 January 1885. Today we have about 1300 members from more than 130 church towers right across Sussex. Our aims, which have changed little since those early days, are to promote and support change ringing on bells in Sussex.

Bellringing is a social hobby that exercises both mind and body - it's a great way to make new friends! Bellringers in Sussex would welcome you as a new recruit! Take a look at our What is Bellringing? and Learning to Ring pages to find out more.
