The Wesley Organ

The pipe organ in Wesley Uniting Church is the largest and most versatile liturgical and recital instrument in the Australian Capital Territory. During the period 2000 to 2002 the organ was comprehensively rebuilt and revoiced by George Stephens of Adelaide. The aim was to make it a fully integrated instrument to match the enhanced acoustic of the church with appropriate voicing and the best available electrical and mechanical systems. It is now an outstanding George Stephens rebuild which faithfully restores more than 14 ranks or approximately 820 pipes, including major flue choruses, from the cherished 1893 Alfred Hunter Organ in the former Methodist Church in Burwood NSW.
