Remembrance Sunday 2018

We have an extensive programme of ringing planned on Sunday to mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the first world war.

To begin we will ring the bells half-muffled at St Michael’s from 09:45 to 10:30 for the morning service.

Then we will remove the muffles and ring the bells ‘open’ for a quarter-peal attempt from 12:30 to 13:30, joining ringers across the country to celebrate the anniversary of the end of the war.

After this we will be ringing at St Mary’s from 14:30 to 15:15 and then finally we will ring at The Ascension, Bitterne Park from 16:00 to 16:45.

And finally, be sure to watch Songs of Praise on BBC One at 13:45, which this week comes from St Michael’s, Southampton and features a brief clip of us ringing!!
