Ring the bells for christmas
St Andrew’s Canberra is open every evening for the 10 days before Christmas from 7.30pm to 10pm so members of the public can ring in Christmas by playing Christmas carols on the church bells.
No need to rsvp – simply arrive and line up for a turn to ring tunes on the bells. If there are people ahead of you, take some time to walk amongst our life-size nativity scenes, do family activities inside the church, and view our Christmas lights.
Around 500 to 700 people ring the bells in the 10 days before Christmas with many families having it as one of annual their Christmas traditions! The bellringers and members of the church have been open St Andrew’s at Christmas time and welcoming people in to ring the bells for over 20 years.
