There is an excellent 1991 Saxon Aldred two-manual tracker action pipe organ and Kawai piano.
The Director of Music, working alongside the Vicar, will have particular responsibility for developing the existing vibrant musical life of the parish, including the growth of the Choir, development of the wider musical life of the church and the supervision of an Organ and four Choral Scholars .
