The Hampton Handbells team requires eleven ringers who have the ability to read music. This group practices Thursday evening from 6:15p - 7:15p and rings about once a month – especially at Christmas and Easter. We would welcome new “ding-a-lings” who are willing to have fun making music!
The Youth Handbell team, comprised of middle school and high school students, has emerged quite talented with their music reading skills. They rehearse for several Sunday evenings immediately before youth group and play in worship when their music is ready.
