Organ recital – October 2021

Organ recital – October 2021

Our new organ was commissioned at a recital on 2nd October 2021 by the acclaimed organist Ian Tracey, Organist Titulaire at Liverpool Cathedral.

Thanks to the generosity of many we have now been able to welcome our new organ into the church—and it is clear that it will be of great benefit to our worship.

Ian treated the audience to a superb programme of music chosen by him to demonstrate our organ’s capabilities.  His wonderful musicianship and his interesting and engaging comments about the music and the organ itself made it an evening to remember.

The recent relaxation of the official virus restrictions to allow some limited services to start in churches under carefully controlled conditions is very welcome but poses real problems in small churches like St Luke’s.

Read more for some of the statistics and findings which led to the PCC deciding to resume limited services in St Luke’s on a trial basis in August.
