Current Status (as of 16 September 2015): 71,000 CHF to go!

 

Welcome to our Organ Appeal website

 

The high-quality organ in Holy Trinity was built by the Swiss builder Kuhn in 1985. The organ plays a central part in the worship of the church, being used for 3 services each Sunday.

 

The organ about 1,000 pipes and many thousands of working parts. After 30 years of use, it is time to clean, repair and, if required, replace parts of the organ. Once done, this operation should not be needed again for the next 20 or 30 years.

 

We are also taking the opportunity to add an electrical control system to the stop action and add playing aids – i.e. the pistons. This will enable the player to fully take advantage of all the possible timbres playable on the organ. We will add ‘Divisional Pistons’ – possibly the only set in the whole of Switzerland.

 

The work to be done costs 150,000 CHF. We have already raised 75,000 CHF from donations and church funds, leaving 75,000 outstanding.

 

Help repair & upgrade our organ!
