Updated through online information from Jim Hepler. -- The organ is in excellent condition. The church has been closed for decades and there is no electricity in the building. The organ can be hand pumped. An electric blower has been installed, but it must be connected to an outside pole via an extension cord.

There is one service per year at this historic site. Local contact is St. Matthew's Church (Anglican), Darlington, S. C.
