All about the bells that ring out from the tower of St John the Baptist church, and online home of Keynsham Church Bell Ringers.

We're currently working hard to expand our presence on the World Wide Web – in between all our bell-ringing commitments, naturally – so do please follow us on Twitter @KeynshamBells where we'll keep you up-to-date with new pages and features as we add them here, and lots more besides.

Ringing Times

The times at which the bells will be ringing (and why) can be found in the Google Calendars below – ringing times for Keynsham are in red, and for Queen Charlton are in green. Also, new for 2018, Bristol Rural Branch ringing events are in blue. (You can choose to view just one or two calendars using the drop-down list at the top-right). Why not add our ringing times to your own calendar? Simply click the +GoogleCalendar button below and you'll be kept right up-to-date!

Further ringing times will be added to these calendars periodically – the church service times are published every four months.
