The Organ

Bellshill Central Parish Church is blessed with having a fine two manual and pedal pipe organ in the sanctuary. The organ was installed by the H Hilsdon Organ Company (Glasgow) in 1930.


The great & pedal organ divisions were cleaned in 2015 by Michael Macdonald & Son Organ Builders. The action is now Electro-pneumatic and a two level solid state memory capture is installed.  In 2015 a MIDI system was added allowing our organist to record items for live playback.

In 2017 the swell organ was fully cleaned and splits in the soundboards rectified by Paul Miller Organ builder of Bonnybridge, Stirling.  The organ is in his care for maintenance and tuning.

Visiting organists are welcome to try this fine organ. Please contact the organist Alan Mathew using the contact page on the main menu.
