All Saints’ Church is having the organ restored and cleaned in September at a total cost of £19,152.00. The Friends of All Saints have pledged 50%, which means we need to raise £9,576.00.


Thank you to all those who have already donated money in aid of the Organ Restoration Fund. It is much appreciated. If you have been meaning to contribute, but have not yet done so, below is another chance to put that right. At some point during your time as a Staplehurst resident, you have probably enjoyed the wonderful sound of the organ in our church; maybe at a Wedding, Christening, Open Days, or accompanying the congregation during the hymns on a Sunday or perhaps carols at Christmas time. If you have enjoyed the organ music on any of these occasions, please consider helping us to raise the money for the restoration of this beautiful instrument. Thank you.
