Bells of Fire

Bells of Fire

Bells of Fire is a community handbell group which meets Wednesdays mornings from 9:00 am to 11:00 am in lower Bushnell Hall. This group is open to anyone in the community or from Central Baptist Church who is interested in ringing English Handbells.

Jane Nolan, from Gales Ferry, is director of the group and has many years of handbell experience. Jane is also director of the Shoreline Ringers English Handbell Choir. You can visit their website at www.shorelineringers.org.

The community handbell group was formed in the spring of 2007 as an outreach to our community – ALL are welcome to come and learn how to play handbells and perhaps even join the group.

The group is available for performances outside the church facility.
