The Adelaide Bellringers

Welcome to the Home-Page of the Adelaide Bellringers.

We are the volunteers who ring the bells in Adelaide's 5 Bell-Towers.
The bells are rung in the English change-ringing style and weigh from 200kg up to 2000kg. We ring them for church services, weddings and civic events, as well as having regular practice sessions during the week.

A peal involves a band of bellringers ringing non-stop for up to 4 hours with no breaks, with the band ringing methods the entire time, with the minimum number of repeating rows. It is both a physical and mental challenge for the entire band, and is effectively a bellringers equivalent of a marathon.
