Acomb Methodist Church Organ

When mum and dad relocated back to York, Acomb Methodist Church became their church family. I popped in to play there when we visited in the summer.

It would be hard to find an instrument more different from the majority of organs here in Norway, in every sense! Apparently when the church building was first built, they had lined-up a reconditioned instrument, but before they could transport it, it’s original home burned down, destroying the organ. So, the present instrument is it’s replacement. Divided into two chambers to the left and right of the communion table, it’s rather large and overpowering for the space. But despite showing signs of age, it was pleasant to play.

The specification and more pictures are here.

There is also a 360 degree interactive view of the sanctuary here.
