St John's Burgess Hill - Organ Appeal

Standing at the centre of
Burgess Hill for over 150 years St John’s Church is the only Grade II* listed building
in Burgess Hill, and houses the magnificent three manual pipe organ built by
James Jepson Binns. Sadly, the condition of our beloved pipe organ has
deteriorated over time. We have now approached the point where a number of
notes are no longer playable, mainly due to wear of the key action, water leak
damage and various tonal alterations made since 1950 - meaning the organ can no
longer be used for concerts or by external musicians. An estimate from a
respected organ restorer which gives an overall cost in the region of £135,000
for the recommended work.

An Appeal Committee has been
formed to explore how to fund this vital work and is researching charitable
funding and grants alongside other initiatives – we have already raised £45,000
but now we need substantial assistance in reaching our target.
