The Netherlands Reformed Congregation of Opheusden is building on the site of the present church, a new church with 1900 seats designed by Van Beijnum Architects. The organ was dismantled by Van den Heuvel Organ building and stored.
The two-manual organ by Van den Heuvel was inaugurated in March 2002. It counts 29 speaking stops spread over Great, Swell and Pedal. The organ is extended with a Positive and a open wooden Quint 10 2/3 on the pedal. For this, the organ will in due course be transferred to the workshop in Dordrecht.
Also, the pulpit, the lectern and font of our own design will be crafted by us.
The aim is to delivery of church and organ by the end of 2015.
This fine instrument was built by Flentrop in 1958. It is a good example of the excellent quality as Flentrop stand for. It was installed in the Opstandingskerk in Den Helder. Piet Kee was consultant. He performed the inauguration in 1958. The organ case is designed by the architects John A. B. Peters and Roelofs.
The instrument is placed in the new Hersteld Hervormde Kerk of Gameren. Bellows and action were restored as well as the slider system featuring double springed sliders. The stop list is unchanged. Monday July 21 started the re-assembly of the organ, which was completed on thursday July 31.
