Activities

Bell Ringers

The bells are rung regularly for church services and special events. The ringers are members of the Wrexham Branch of the North Wales Association of Church Bell Ringers and practice every Tuesday from 7:00pm.

We are always looking for new ringers. Bell ringing does not require great strength apart from climbing the stairs up to the ringing chamber. Anyone wishing to find out more about the bells and bell ringing is welcome to contact the ringers.

There is also a booklet giving more details of the bells. Copies are available from the stall in the church.

Church Choir

The choir here at All Saints is led by the Leader/Organist Mark Thompson, and is affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music. We are an enthusiastic mixed choir, who are always eager to learn new and interesting pieces of music. Our repertoire is extensive, but we are always keen to add to it. The choir is required to sing for Sunday services, it also has a commitment to Choral Evensong, and sings for special occasions such as Easter, Christmas, and Harvest Festivals.

We are always happy to accept new members, and currently we would be pleased to have additional sopranos, tenors, but especially, base singers.

If you are thinking that you might like to join us, please contact Mark, or any of the Church Wardens and let them know of your interest, or email the address below. You do not need to be musically trained to join the choir and an initial interest would not commit you, but who knows, you may get to enjoy choral music and singing with us?

The choir has its practise night each Wednesday evening in the Church House opposite the Church at 7.00pm until 8.15pm

As a choir, we are happy sometimes to try more difficult musical pieces joining choirs in the RSCM Choral Festivals at Saint Asaph and Chester Cathedrals, as Gresford is ideally situated to access the Chester Diocesan events as well as our own. These events can often be most uplifting and spur choristers on to gain awards for their singing. The choir is a robed choir, and can be engaged to sing for Weddings at All Saints, Gresford.

We look forward to welcoming you, and if you do wish to come along to practise nights, you can contact us on our email: allsaintschoir_dohrayme@btinternet.com

Church Handbells

Gresford Handbell Ringers comprises of a group of friends who enjoy performing on Handbells and sharing their love of music with others.

We meet weekly to practise playing a wide variety of music on handbells, ranging from classical through to jazz and modern pop and also enjoy playing traditional Welsh tunes.

Our team is affiliated to the Handbell Ringers of Great Britain (HRGB) and performs regularly for charity events, local organisations and at regional Rallies.

Our meetings take place on Monday evenings from 7.15pm to 8.45pm at Church House, The Green, Gresford.

Gresford Tuesday Group

This group meets every 4th Tuesday of the month apart from December!
It meets at 7.30pm in Church House, The Green, Gresford - unless a particular meeting is organised to take in a different venue…e.g. visit a local garden as part of the National Garden Scheme or pay a visit to the theatre.
We sometimes invite visiting speakers or perhaps enjoy a craft demonstration and possibly twice a year we just enjoy getting together for a meal out!
The £5 charge covers any visiting speakers’ costs, refreshments every session, and a donation to our chosen charity....oh and we also have a raffle prize for a lucky winner each session!

We are an inclusive group and welcome all newcomers and each year we have a new programme of events.
