St. Mary’s Organ Replacement Fund

[thermometer raised=30000 target=35000 align=left height=400]

With a new vicar at the helm, and a (nearly) watertight church, we have news for all our generous supporters. A Porritt Organ, beautiful and perfectly sized to replace our much-loved instrument, is available and, equally important, affordable. This organ has the approval of our team of organ experts, including David Hill, of the Epiphany Singers. It will have more variety of sound, and an electrified action. It should last for at least 50 years and probably many more.

There are still many formalities we must complete before we can embark on the actual work of  organ transplant, but we are very hopeful that mid 2018 will see the new Porritt organ in place.

Once the project is up and running, we hope to involve supporters with activities such as a trip to the organ workshop, and a talk about church organs.

On behalf of Rev. Merry and the PCC, many thanks to all who have supported this aspect of the church’s future, and we shall keep you updated as the project becomes reality.
