Well, frankly, we need money! And every little helps. A member of our congregation recently ran the London Marathon to raise money to start the organ fund. We are very grateful to Tony Jeffs for his mammoth effort. See more on his JustGiving crowdfunding page.
We are also most grateful that, on his death, the family of Ron Cooper, a member of our choir, donated a substantial amount to the organ restoration fund.
But £70,000 is a lot of money to find and we do need all the help we can get to preserve the traditional sound that has been heard in Castle Bromwich for the past 200 years. And every little really does help!
We are not currently able to take donations online from this website. If you would like to donate to the restoration of our historic organ, please get in touch with us via our church website - www.stmaryandstmargaret.co.uk/contacts.
The organ is played every Sunday at the 10 am Parish Communion service as it has been since it was put in place some 200 years ago. Church-goer or not, you are very welcome to come and join us.
CONTACT us to pay a visit. For a small donation you can have a guided tour round our 900-year-old church and hear the organ played. You can even arrange to try your hand at playing this organ which has served the community of Castle Bromwich for 200 years.

Music has been an important part of the worship at Castle Bromwich parish church for hundreds of years. We're now trying to raise some £70,000 to save our historic organ for many years to come.
