Spencer Organ Company was contracted in 2005 to perform a full restoration of Opus 2180, necessitating the entire organ’s removal from the church. All electro-pneumatic actions were releathered and all pipes cleaned, restored, and re-regulated. The original slider chests were restored by Andover Organ Company, and the Pedal stops were extended to 32 notes, from the original 30.

A Kimball Tuba, on 10″ wind pressure, was installed on a new windchest, and made playable from the Great, Choir, and Pedal.

Dobson Pipe Organ Builders, LTD installed a new console in Hook & Hastings style in 2012.
