Music and Worship

We only have one bell - but have several people help ring it. The bell is rung before our Sunday and Wednesday services, as well as for Weddings and Funerals when requested.

Concerts / Live Music

In September 2022, an opportunity arose to replace the Coventry Organ which was developing some minor electrical faults due to its age. The new organ came from the home of Dr Judith Langfield in Bristol, and was built by the same firm as the Coventry Organ, Eminent Organs. The current organ consists of three manuals and 54 speaking stops.
