A Century of Remembrance

Princes Risborough Baptist Church, Bell Street

flanders fields

In November 2014 we held an Evening of Organ Music, Readings and Songs to mark the 100th Anniversary of the First World War and to rededicate our refurbished War Memorial Organ.

Revd Paul Lavender MA, Oxford; M Phil, Oxford 
was our Guest Organist.

All proceeds went to support Help for Heroes


The Memorial Organ

The present church pipe organ was installed in 1921 as a War Memorial in honour of those associated with the Church and Sunday School who served in the Great War.
