Organ Appeal

 

Organ appealThe organ that you can now hear in King Charles Church began life in 1887, It was built by the renowned firm of J W Walker, and has been extended by them several times since, most notably in 1938, when their advertising leaflet described it as "in every way a complete and modern three manual instrument". Its voice plays an important part in services every Sunday, as well as being heard in weddings, funerals and concerts throughout the year.

In 2015, we ran an appeal to raise money for the organ's restoration, and successfully raised £30,000. Work on the organ was accomplished in stages so that the instrument was hardly completely out of action, and its completion will be celebrated at the King Charles Festival service on 31st January 2016.

Donations may still be made and will be gratefully received, in order to build up the fund against any future work.
