Welcome to the website of the St Mary Abbots Guild. We are based at St Mary Abbots, Kensington and also ring for service at St Luke’s Chelsea and St Stephen’s Rochester Row. On this site you can find details of our practices, service ringing, focus methods, quarter-peal and peal attempts and our officers. Alongside this there are links to other useful ringing websites and pages.
Practices are normally held at St Mary Abbots on Thursday evenings between 7:30 and 9:15pm. Alongside methods from the Standard Eight Surprise Royal, from December 2022 we will be ringing Triton Surprise Royal as a special method. The line can be found on page 122 of both the 2022 and 2023 Ringing World Diaries.
NB: Between December 2022 and March 2023 we will be experimenting with some different Sunday morning ringing schedules. Please see the appropriate page for details.
