New Organ for St John’s Church!

 UPDATE:  We did it!   The new organ was installed and has been in use every Sunday since June. Many thanks for all the generous donations received and the very generous bequest. We pray that the organ will always be used in a fitting manner to praise God and to bring people together, as a faith community, in loving fellowship.

Chelford Church will in the near future be purchasing a ‘new’ organ, an Allen Bravura L-227t Organ to be precise. This venture has been a step of faith for us as well as being something of a necessity. We are fortunate to be in receipt of a generous bequest and the family are very happy for it to be used in this way.


We want to be able to hear great music in the church, not only at services both regular and on all those special occasions but also at recitals and concerts that many people will be able to enjoy with us. We see this as a positive step towards a hopeful future for the church.


The cost of the new organ is £15,950 and the bequest will mean that we only need to raise £2,000 to make up the balance. We are asking for your help in this and hope that through fund-raising and generous donations we will be able to realise this amount.


If you wish to make a donation, either:


  • Send a cheque made payable to Chelford and Lower Withington PCC to: Mr Ian Johnston, PCC Treasurer, Dalefields, Macclesfield Road, Chelford, Macclesfield SK11 9AH with a note saying that it is for the Organ Fund.

  • Alternatively give on the plate at church services in an envelope marked Organ Fund.


Please see the insert with more information on the new organ, from Charles Rogers.


We will keep you informed of progress in the coming months.


With grateful thanks, Revd Gerri Tetzlaff
