The Essex Association of Change Ringers   President: The Right Reverend the Lord Bishop of Chelmsford

Ringing for the new Bishop

The new Bishop of Chelmsford, The Rt Rev Dr Guli Francis-Dehqani, will be officially "seated" on Saturday 4th September at 3.30pm at Chelmsford Cathedral (attendance at this event is by invitation only).

Having spoken with the Diocesan Office, to introduce bellringing to Bishop Guli, she would be very keen for as many towers as possible to ring prior to 3.30pm on that day to celebrate her "seating" as the 11th Bishop of our Diocese. As Bishop of Chelmsford, she also becomes our Association President, and this would be fitting way to welcome her to the Diocese.

Bishop Guli is interested in understanding the breadth of reach that bellringers have across the Diocese so I would be grateful if you are able to ring for any length of time prior to 3.30pm on 4th September to let me know as soon as possible.

I have set up an event on Bellboard for you to link your performance, whether it's a short touch, some call changes, a quarter peal or peal which I will collate afterwards to send off to Bishop Guli with the Association's welcome.
