Dates when key work has been undertaken on current organ Electronic pedal division added in 1995 by Paul F. Hufner.
Dates of any moves that have taken place to current organ Alterations to the church in 1987 led to moving the organ to its present position.  Bourdon 16' pipes could not fit into the new layout so an electronic Bourdon 16' and Dolce 8' with tremulant were added by Paul Hufner and Stan Higgot.
Information on current organ
Comparable instruments to current organ
Current status Due to a change in worship format the organ was deemed unsuitable and was unceremoniously removed from the church and trashed. Some parts may have been recovered, but, to all intents and purposes, this organ was deliberately destroyed c. 2009.
