Partnership activities

Handbell Ringers Camp

The Alumni Ringers from Southminster return to Kateřinice each August to lead a weeklong camp. Handbell ringers from Slovakia and other Czech communities join in the activities and the ringing. We prepare new handbell music, work on our English, improve the Bible literacy through song, art, musicals and stories, and have grown to be a very close community that spans two continents. What a blessing the bells have been to all involved!

Report from the Camp 2018 is here.
