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 .
Please feel free to spread the word about the Unitarian Church in Dublin by forwarding this e-mail onto others who you think might be interested in it. Also, the church has a presence on Facebook and Twitter – please do come and visit us. All details that we have for all these events are up there as well as our newly revamped website at www.dublinunitarianchurch.org .
