William M. Worden on September 01, 2020:

The church closed in April, 2020. The organ had been virtually unplayable for over twenty years. The roof over the chamber was leaking and the plaster ceiling had begun to fall, so Dana Hull removed almost all the exposed pipework in the second half of the 1990s and stored it in trays in the north transept. That was the situation when the church closed. The pipe trays, covered with a tarp, can be seen in the photos.
