St John the Baptist Kingston Lisle - Restoration Update No.24

News from St John the Baptist Kingston Lisle

Dear Kingston Lisle Church Restoration Supporter

Please find attached our 24th restoration update, as we approach the end of our project.

After nearly five years of planning, our organ is now under construction in our organ builder David Stalley’s Village Workshop in Essex. It’s a restored, enhanced and recased Walker Type C electric action instrument which was originally in a church in London. It’s being configured specifically for the small space and budget available. We have less than £5,000 to raise of the £33,000 cost (a brand new one would be well over £100,000). We aim to have the organ installed well in time for Christmas and to hold an opening recital for all our wonderful supporters. It will then be dedicated by the Rt Revd Colin Fletcher, Bishop of Dorchester, at a special service on Mothering Sunday, 31st March 2019.

Thanks again for your support

Arthur & Angus
