The Organ



The Organ in St Stephen's Uniting Church was built in 1934 by the Australian firm Hill, Norman and Beard. It consists of 51 stops and contains approximately 3,700 pipes. During the 1970's, a number of changes were made to the organ, bringing it into line with the neo-Baroque style prevalent during that time. Some of these changes have been reversed during restoration work commenced in 2009.

The current 2014 specification of the organ is given below. For further information tracing the changes made over the years and photos of the past and present organs of St Stephen's, please visit: www.sydneyorgan.com/StStephens.html
