Ring out to draw attention to Climate Change


COP26 Glasgow


Our Diocese has requested that we encourage as many of our TDGR members to be able to ring their bells at 6pm on the 30th of October for 30 minutes (or longer). We however recognise that not ever incumbent maybe happy with this, so we encourage TCs to ask and have the conversation.
Again, this is another excuse and opportunity to advertise why you are ringing to your local community and invite local people to find out more about ringing and maybe even start to learn!
If you need any help with local PR, please contact Jane McCutchan our TDGR Public Relations Officer on pro@tdgr.org.co.uk


Ask your incumbent if it’s ok to ring at your church
