Music

Music in worship is very important to us. We strive to maintain a standard of excellence in performance of choral and instrumental music which complements and enhances the liturgy and inspires the worshipper.
A variety of quality concerts are promoted by us - from jazz to solo instrumentalists from brass band to choral - in styles from classical to popular.

THE MAIN ORGAN

The main organ is an outstanding 3 manual instrument by J. .J. Binns, originally built for the church of S. Mark, Woodhouse, Leeds in 1889. It was rescued from destruction by Eye Parish Church and installed here in 2015 by E. J. Johnson and Son (Cambridge) Ltd.
All the pipwork is original with three additional stops added in 2015: the Pedal Posaune at 32' and 16', Pedal Trombone 16' and the Choir Tuba 8'.
The console was gifted to the church by The Rev'd Ronald Casebow in memory of his wife, Ethel Annie Casebow and crafted by Renatus Ltd of Bideford.

Church Shop

It is not such a rare thing these days to find a shop inside a Church building, but it probably was quite a radical move when Eye Church Shop was first opened over 25 years ago. The shop has always opened using volunteer help – and the passion to keep it open has waxed and waned over the years.

Development Appeal

We have completed the installation of the majestic J. J. Binns organ. Thanks to our supporters and the tremendous skills of the organ builders, E. J. Johnson & Son (Cambridge) Ltd, our dream has at last been realised! Our fund-raising for this stage of our campaign is now complete.
