Updated by Gerald Furi, who has heard or played the organ.

Pipework in rear gallery, 2m console in front nave on main floor. The coax cable connecting the front console to the rear gallery was cut sometime in the last 10 years, and the console later removed; the pipework and freestanding swell box remain on the gallery, and the church now has a Rodgers electronic down front.
