Music

We are a small contemporary music group that meet regularly to practice and to learn new songs for inclusion in the Sunday Evening Service at Darfield. We have various musicians and singers. The objective of our group is to come together in fellowship to praise and worship God.

We are always open to new members either singers or musicians. Contact the Rector for further details.

If you enjoy singing, then come along and join us. We meet on Tuesdays in Church at 19:00. From early September we begin our Christmas music preparation. Why not give us a try without any initial commitment?

Rest assured that there will be no audition. You will be made very welcome- whether soprano, alto, tenor or bass.

The Bell-Ringers practice in the tower every Thursday between 19:30 to 21:00 and we ring for Sunday morning services from 10:30 to 11:00 every week.

We have regular Darfield ringers, with a wide range of ages! We have friends from nearby towers such as Barnburgh and Monk Bretton who regularly help at our practices for services or weddings and we help them in return.

We would love to welcome any new learners; ideally we need at least 12 to 15 ringers in order to keep all 8 bells sounding regularly. Bell ringing is a very interesting hobby and is also a chance to meet other people. As a bell ringer you will be most welcome at other towers, either in the local area or when you are on holiday. Our ringers often go on “bell ringing outings” with other local ringers.

You do not need to be musical, you do not need to be strong, and we can teach you. Being able to count to 8 would help, but we can even teach you that! If you are aged between 10 to 100 and want to give it a try please let us know. See David or Hilary Hildred, Chris Walton or Kay Valentine for more information or simply phone the Rectory. We are a happy bunch and our practices are filled with laughter as well as learning.
