Organ

The Takapuna Methodist Church Organ

The organ is one of the larger organs built by George Croft & Son Ltd while the Croft family still owned and controlled the company, with Mr Bill Croft at the head. The organ was the gift of the Winstone family – Winstones were for nearly a century a prominent business in Auckland providing building materials and contracting supplies. The consultant for the new organ was Maxwell Fernie, Director of Music at St Mary of the Angels Church in Wellington, who gave the opening recital in June 1963. Unusually for the time, the instrument has an attached drawstop console. Many of the ranks are extended.
