11/7/2019: Ernie Day has been very busy during the last few (10) years, with quite a few additions to the instrument, including digital pedal stops, since there is no room for real pipes of that size in the organ loft.
There is ongoing work yet to be completed, with the addition of extra ranks to all departments.
6 August this year will be the 30th anniversary of the dedication of the organ in 1989.
Photos taken of Mr Ernie Day at our pipe organ and (below) of the interior of the church building. More details on this wonderful organ can be found here. March 2013.
