Church Pipe Organ Appeal
Organ Tuning

Music is an important part of our tradition and worship here at St Andrew's and the pipe organ is an integral part of our regular services, and is used for many other services, recitals, concerts, weddings and funerals each year.

Our organ has served us well for 60 years, but is now in need of a full refurbishment. As a church we are committed to raising the funds to enable this to take place, but we need your support to do so.

For more information and to donate, see below.
