Vicar loses vote to get his own church bells silenced at night


Rev David Parry said the bells of St Mary and All Saints’ Church in Conwy were disturbing his sleep as they ring every 15 minutes.

The medieval church is right next to the vicar’s house and he worried that the chimes might put off tourists as well.



He wrote to Conwy Town Council about the noise and asked for them to be silenced between 00:15 and 6:15.

The town council conducted a survey of the 400 residents and of the 210 responses, only six said they agreed the bells should be silenced.

One resident told North Wales Live: “I’m glad common sense has prevailed, those clock chimes have been chiming since the 19th century and are part of the town’s fabric.

“They aren’t very loud, and I’m happy I’ll continue to hear them during the night if I’m awake as I find them comforting.”

Rev David Parry said to the local press: “I am grateful to the town council for considering this. Their decision not to silence the bells overnight won’t change my really positive relationship with them or the way we serve this lovely town together.”

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

What is your response?

If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
