The first written record of there being a pipe organ at St Andrew's occurs in the late sixteenth century. Since then, the church has had a number of organs and, during the early 19th century, at least one wind band. (See the instruments on display under the tower.)
Today's instrument is a product of various rebuilds, re-sitings and enlargements, the last of which took place in 2011. This particular rebuild expanded the instrument to three manuals and pedals and incorporated the splended Solo Trumpet stop with its projecting brass resonators.
The organ is played both for our services and occasional concerts.
Details of its specification and history can be found in the West Tarring entry of the National Pipe Organ Register.
