Back to Groups and Organisations The choir of some 25 men, women and children practices on Friday evenings from 7.00 to 8.00 in Church. The choir leads the music at the Parish Eucharist and Sunday Evensong and usually sings an anthem at the former. New choristers are always welcome, though there is a very simple audition. Back to Groups and Organisations St Mary's has a 14 cwt 8 bell ring. The ringers practice from 7.30 to 9.00 on Wednesday evenings and usually ring for the 9.45 and 6.30 Services on Sundays. Experienced ringers or complete beginners are always welcome. Back to Groups and Organisations The Mothers' Union meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 7.30 pm in the Church Room.

Bereavement lunchesBring and Share lunches are organised for two groups about three or four times a year for all those who have lost a loved one, but especially for those who are now living alone. To have a friendly occasion to share a meal with others can be a real support and encouragement. The lunches are held in St Mary’s Church Room and there is no charge, but once a year we organise a lunch out for those who wish to come along and this costs about £11.

A bible study group meets regularly, usually at 10.30 am in the Church Room on the first Monday in each month for about an hour. We aim to bridge the gap between the world of the Bible and our world, and to hear what God is saying to us through the Bible today.

There is a list of burials in the old, closed churchyard compiled by the Ringmer History Study Group.
We hope to provide a list for the new churchyard in due course.
The Bert Errey Trustback to top
This trust was established in 1992 in memory of The Revd. Bert Errey. It makes grants to teenagers or young people, regardless of their denomination, to assist towards travel or maintenance costs in connection with activities in which they will meet Christians from different countries, cultures and denominations and thus gain a wider vision of the Kingdom of God.
Grants are only made to people who live in the parish of Ringmer (or in the United Benefice of Wolverton with Norton Lindsey and Langley in the Diocese of Coventry).
