The Tower Project

On Monday 19th July 2021 the new bell frame was delivered to church to be installed in the tower.

A special date for your diary

Monday August 9th 2021 will be a very special day for Alnwick. On that day 10 bells will be delivered to St. Michael’s and for the only time they will be on display in the church for all to see before they are lifted into the belfry.
We are hopeful that the bells will be unloaded and in church by mid-afternoon for public viewing.

At 7pm there will be a short service of blessing by The Very Revd. Mark Wroe, Bishop of Berwick, in the presence of Her Grace the Duchess of Northumberland, Patron of the project. It will be followed by light refreshments and further opportunity to see the bells. We are looking forward to welcoming all who want to take advantage of this once in a lifetime chance to see this magnificent ring of ten bells.

 

Please note that service links may not be active until shortly before the service begins.
