Work continues on the restoration of the historic 1885 George Fincham organ, formerly in Williamstown Congregational Church. The organ is in largely original condition and retains its hand blowing feeders and cone tuning. The oak grained casework and stenciled façade pipes are being refurbished by Mr Mark Nobel of Melbourne.
