The eight tower bells, which were dedicated in May 1964, were made by the Taylor Bell Foundry of London. Each bell, in keeping with the ancient tradition that thinks of bells as having some traits of human personality, has its own name.

THE SMALLEST BELL, the gift of Mr. & Mrs. John F. Templeton, in memory of their daughter,
is named Miriam.

THE SECOND BELL, given anonymously, is named Magnificat, in honor of the Virgin Mary.

THE THIRD BELL, the gift of Mr. & Mrs. William Bement, is named Peace.

THE FOURTH BELL, in part the gift of Mr. & Mrs. Donald Shimp, is named Benedicte.

THE FIFTH BELL, the gift of the Churchmen of the parish, is named St. Bede.

THE SIXTH BELL, the gift of Dr. & Mrs. A. J. Walker, in memory of Edith & William Walker, is named Jubilate Deo.

THE SEVENTH BELL, the gift in part of Mr. & Mrs. Kenneth G. Taylor and in part the gift of the Siefferman family in memory of Emily Cogger Cram, is named Gloria in Excelsis.

THE LARGEST BELL, the gift of the Parish through the 1963 Christmas offering, is named
Their Voice Is Gone Out Into All the Earth.

THEIR VOICE HAS GONE OUT INTO ALL THE EARTH indicates the missionary purpose of our bells. They sound out in our community the joy and solemnity of the Christian faith. It is fitting that Their Voice Is Gone Out Into all the Earth, the gift of the entire parish, was made as a Christmas offering in thanksgiving for God’s incarnation. It is also fitting that the bell given by the Churchmen was named St. Bede, for St. Bede’s Church in Tucker was the first mission church organized by St. Bartholomew’s and gives concrete expression to our missionary purpose.
