Organ Renovation

We are currently in the process of raising funds to restore the pipe organ, installed in 1937 by one of the UK’s foremost organ builders, Henry Willis & Sons. The pipe organ is at the centre of a thriving musical programme that benefits schools, musical societies, students as well as weekly services. However, the instrument is 80 years old and the original electrical wiring is now severely worn and breaking down, resulting in the failure of notes and stops to function. With the imminent danger of the wiring deteriorating completely the organ will become unusable.


Restoring the organ to working order and fulfilling its potential to meet the musical demands made on it will ensure that the popular concerts, tuition and scholarship, and school, civic and regular services, which all rely on the organ, will continue to flourish, grow and benefit the community.


Sponsor a pipe

So far we have raised £15,000 through our pipe sponsorship scheme. There are 1000 pipes in the organ and you can sponsor any of them for £25 each. Sponsor for yourself, family & friends, in memory of someone, or as a thanksgiving. With each sponsorship you will receive a certificate, your name will be recorded for prosperity in a special ledger kept in church, and you will also be able to hear ‘your’ pipe/s played in special sessions after some 10am Sunday services. Please contact Thomas Thorpe ashchurchwarden@outlook.com for more information.
