The Netherlands Reformed Congregation of Opheusden is building on the site of the actual church, a new church with 1.900 seats designed by Van Beijnum Architects. The organ was dismantled in September by Van den Heuvel and stored.
The two-manual 29 stop organ built by Van den Heuvel was inaugurated in March 2002.
In the new church a Rugpositif (3rd manual) and an open wooden Quint 10 2/3 on the pedal will be added.
Also, the pulpit, the lectern and font of our own design will be crafted by us.
The aim is to deliver the organ by the end of 2015.
