Administrative history

The Geelong Bell-ringers’ Club’s first recorded performance was at a tea meeting at St Paul’s Church in Geelong West in 1867 after having only recently formed. Since their inception, the work of the club members has been ringing out over Geelong during occasions including weekly church services, weddings and Queen’s Birthday celebrations.

The club has also welcomed visiting organisations during its lifetime including the 1883 visit by the Victorian Society of Change-Ringers whose performance was praised by the captain of the club at the time. More recently, current tower captain David Heyes saw a group of elite bell-ringers from England perform a 3 hour peal at St Paul’s in 2011.

There are currently 10 members of the St Paul’s congregation keeping the traditions of the club alive although activities have been placed on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
