The PCC has now installed a digital pipe organ from Viscount Organs  which is of a bespoke design, expertly customised for the acoustics and beauty of our building.

It was needed as our Victorian pipe organ was failing to meet the needs of our busy parish church and had been proving unreliable. The independent expert advice we received was that a different instrument was needed ‘urgently’.   We shall keep the historic pipe organ in situ and will continue to maintain it and use it for some smaller services. The majority of the 18 speakers are concealed within the pipe organ case, thereby respecting the visual integrity of our ancient building.

 

The total cost is £73,500. We have already received around £30,000 from a historic trust, a personal donation and from the Reading Blue Coat School.

In addition, there are some PCC funds available but we are seeking to raise between £20-25,000 from the congregation and other well-wishers. Each of the stops can be sponsored and those who do this will be publicly acknowledged unless you would rather give anonymously. If you are a taxpayer, please be sure to gift aid your sponsorship.
