For centuries, bells have been associated with the Christian faith,
as they ring their pure tones, clear and true,
proclaiming the message of joy, peace, and love.
St. Paul’s has 4 octaves of Schulmerich Handbells, acquired in 2008.
There are two handbell groups, Afternoon and Evening.
Previous musical experience is not a requirement,
and members achieve a fine degree of musicianship
as they work together each week.
One Handbell group is intergenerational
making it an excellent family activity,
and there are other ad hoc groups being organized.
Handbells are also incorporated in the music programme
for the Celestial Singers and the Sunbeams.
The Afternoon Handbell group
rehearses on Mondays at 1:30 pm
and the Evening Handbell group for all ages
rehearses on Mondays at 7:00 pm.
Inquiries about participating
should be directed to Fredric DeVries, Music Director.
