Our organ was originally built by the Liverpool firm of Rushworth & Dreaper.
The present instrument is the result of a 1997 rebuild (with additions of a Great Mixture, Trumpet and Pedal Trombone) by well known Worcester organ-builder Trevor Tipple.
The organ is located on a West End gallery (see left photo), which it shares with the choir during services.
The console (see centre photo) is of modern, compact design with tab keys for the stops.
Our church is blessed with a lively acoustic that the organ very adequately fills.
