Trinity Church in George Street, originally Methodist, is now a Local Ecumenical Project (LEP) involving the Methodist and United Reformed Churches.  It houses a substantial organ, installed in George Street in 1896 by Alfred Kirkland (of Wakefield, who by then had branches of his business in Nottingham and London), but believed to be largely comprised of earlier pipework by William Hill.

The organ has recently been rebuilt with some tonal alterations, particularly to the Choir division where mutations have been added, by local organ-builder M C Thompson.  One rank, the Swell Suabe Flute originally on the Choir, is believed to be by Snetzler.
