The Current Organ

The current electronic organ was built by Makin, it has 2 manuals and 40 speaking stops creating a wide spectrum of sound. It was installed in 1988 to replace the previous organ which was Makin's first attempt at an electronic organ.

The organ is used for two services every Sunday to accompany the congregation and choir. The organ supports a large congregation as well as accompanying the choir for both rousing anthems and quieter, more reflective moments. It is an essential part of the church's musical tradition which originates from when the church was built in 1851. The choir sings at both Sunday services each week and is augmented for special services at such times as Christmas and Easter. The organ is a vital part of the music making.
