The organ was built by George Fincham, one of Australia's finest and largest organ building companies.






The 1905 George Fincham Pipe Organ was originally built for St. John's Presbyterian Church, Wahroonga. It was relocated to the Hurstville Christadelphian Church in Rose Street, Hurstville in 1961 and moved to its current location between 1986 and 1992.

In July 1985, the Organ Historical Trust of Australia investigated the pipe organ, documented their findings and listed it in their archives.





Peter Jewkes and company, along with valuable heritage advice from Dr Kelvin Hastie, undertook the restoration work on the organ which was completed in 2009. The restoration was documented in Dr. Hastie's report, August 2009.

Funding was made possible by generous donations from Church members and in 2008, the Heritage Branch, NSW Department of Planning, kindly assisted the restoration of the organ with a grant.

The historic organ continues to be regularly used to accompany worship services held at the hall.
