Andrew Henderson on February 15, 2022:

Taken from an undated history of the church compiled by parishioner Verna Reid: "Built especially for Christ Church by the Wicks Organ Co., the new organ was installed in February 1964, and played by Mr. H. E. Bennett, February 9. The first recital was given on February 24 by Mr. Douglas Campbell, organist of St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church in Waterloo, Ontario. The organ was financed by special donations from the congregation and organizations, in memory of the departed members of our congregation and of those who made the supreme sacrifice in the two World Wars."
