Wider use of the organ

When we get our lovely organ restored, we will be able to use it for other purposes, rather than just for providing the music at our church services.

Ipsden has a tradition of putting on Sunday Afternoon Tea Recitals, whereby local or visiting musicians entertain local people, and not just church-goers. Regrettably due to the current state of the organ, it cannot be used for recital purposes: it would be wonderful if we could attract fine organists to our church to perform on the organ again, as they used to in the past.

Also with an organ in restored condition, we could use the organ for teaching and practice purposes, encouraging young local musicians to learn to play the organ; even for some, going so far as accompanying some of our Sunday services.
