As part of a major renovation of the church Meeting House, the 1960's Abbot & Sieker organ was completely rebuilt and modified. A new three manual tiered drawknob console was built including solid state electronics and MIDI. New winding and wiring replaced the old, and several ranks were added or modified. A new facade was added including a 16' and 8' Principal and Trompette en Chamade, all in flamed copper.

The new organ was installed in January 2003.
