The Brielle Bell Ringers Guild is a very active club. They ring the bells in the St. Catharijne church, maintain, give information and organise activities.

These bells are simply rung. They cannot do change ringing such as is common in the UK. Nevertheless, it's a mighty sound!

Especially since 3 new bells were added in 2010. Two of them can be rung by hand. So the bell ringers now have 5 bells to ring instead of 3. The bells range from 350-4350 kg in weight and over 500 years in age.
