The church is currently fundraising to spend €250,000 to restore its beautiful J.W. Walker Pipe Organ (1910) at the back of the church. In March 2012, the campaign celebrated its first anniversary by announcing it had raised €48,000 so we’re well on the way but have plenty more to do yet. If you want to help support the project, you can by attending events at the church, buying the various books the church has published or by donating in the church or via Paypal (all credit cards accepted) through our website. If you’re interested in learning more, you should go to www.dublinunitarianchurch.org/restoration .
