St Mary-at-Finchley has 8 bells. They are a full octave in A-flat major. The oldest four bells date from 1770, the other bells having been added in 1804, 1847 and 1950. The small Sanctus Bell, which is rung during Communion, dates from 1783. The original 1770 treble bell, which produces the highest note you hear when the clock chimes, bears the inscription:
GOOD PEOPLE ALL THAT HEAR US RING BE FAITHFULL TO YOUR GOD & KING.

It is with great thanks to our friends from Middlesex County Association and London Diocesan Guild of Church Bell Ringers that we have a growing and enthusiastic band of ringers. We ring for Sunday Service (9.30am to 10am) and other services, national celebrations and commemorations. We practice on Friday evenings between 6.30pm and 8pm. New or returning ringers are welcome.

A short recording of our bells rung by a visiting band in 2012 is available at the listening post in the outer south aisle, on the wall by the font. Or you can come along on Sunday morning to hear us live!
