Morning Organist

St. Mary's Bromley wishes to engage an organist to play for two, preferably three Sunday mornings a month at our 10.30am services. The fee paid is £50 per service. We have an able and enthusiastic choir which practises on a Thursday evening and sings at the morning services of Holy Communion and evening services. We are seeking an organist who will be familiar with church choral music. The music of St. Mary’s includes a broad range of anthems in line with RSCM suggestions. Please apply to Revd Alan Keeler through our contact page.

The Organ

In 1882 William Hill and Sons built for St. Mary’s a two-manual and pedals organ, replacing a four-stop single manual organ previously used. The organ was enlarged to a three-manual organ in 1892. There was a rebuild in 1953 by Rushworth and Dreaper which incorporated a detached console in the north transept. In 1993, F.H. Browne of Canterbury undertook major repairs and restoration, including the addition of new stops. The organ is now one of the best (if not the best) in the local area.
