COVID-19: Along with many churches and cathedrals around the world, Trinity's bells remain silent during the pandemic. We will update this page when ringing is scheduled to resume.

Visiting Ringers & Bands
Change ringers from other towers are very welcome to join our ringing while visiting New York. Bands may also book the bells for peal attempts and specialized practices.
Interested in Learning?
Non-ringers are very welcome to visit the tower to watch us ring, and, if they wish, to have a ringing lesson with an instructor. For more information, arrange a visit.
Striking Competition 2021
We have placed a hold on making a decision to host the 2021 Striking Competition. We are monitoring the pandemic both locally and internationally, and will make announcements when a decision has been made.
We will use our website for future event registration such as for the striking competition and 12-bell weekends. We are planning a number of events when it is safe to resume ringing, so stay tuned!

We're sorry to pass on the news that Roger Savory died peacefully in his sleep on Friday March 13th. He was 90. Roger was a big contributor to helping build a change ringing band when the Trinity bells were installed in 2006, and he was a good friend to many in the band at that time. He attended regularly until about 2013, after which he could no longer manage the stairs. Roger was an active and very accomplished ringer for many decades, both in North America and earlier in the UK, and he rang just over 800 peals.

|Today’s ringing saw much of our repertory, including Stedman, Erin, Grandsire, Plain Bob, Cambridge, Bristol, and of course Plain Hunt and Rounds & Call Changes. Our post-service open ringing closed with something borrowed from the orchestra tradition for a farewell, by which individual groups or instrumentalists drop out one by one. We started with rounds on 10, and on command of the conductor “Treble Stand”, the 1 was set, and a minute or so later the same call meant the 2 was set, and onward with rounds on 8, 7, 6, 5, etc. until only the tenor remained ringing, and it tolled 11 times, once for each year since the bells were installed.|
