Bells are the largest and loudest instrument in the world. Church bells are rung to call the faithful to worship, for weddings and funerals and to mark national occasions. Bell ringing is also a great way to learn a skill, get gentle physical exercise and make some new friends. Read about learning to ring on Bellringing.org.
