Attractive girl we hear going round for job in church? (4-7)


I believe the answer is:


'job in church?' is the definition.
(as in church bells)

'attractive girl we hear going round' is the wordplay.
'attractive girl' becomes 'belle' (a belle is a beautiful woman).
'we hear' shows a homophone (sound like).
'going round' becomes 'ringing' (ring can mean to go around or surround).
'belle' is a homophone of 'bell'.

'for' is the link.

(Another definition for bell-ringing that I've seen is " Campanology".)
