The sanctuary is a gathering place on Sunday mornings where new faces are welcomed, old friends reunite, all are welcomed, and God becomes our focus. Comfortably accommodating 325 people, the sanctuary has both a main floor and a balcony. It also houses our Zimmer/Walker Organ installed in 2002 and upgraded in 2007. The sanctuary can be entered through the main doors on Duke of Gloucester Street or through the Conduit. Ushers helps guests find their way and also have large print bulletins and hymnals as well as hearing assistance devices for those who need them.

Our Zimmer/Walker organ consists of 23 ranks of pipes, a total of 1,345 pipes (built by C.A. Zimmer Company) and 62 ranks of digital augmentation (equivalent to 3396 additional pipes) by the Walker Technical Company. Walker has digitally recorded pipe sounds of outstanding organs around the world and reproduces these sounds with meticulous attention to detail, including subtle pipe organ nuances. The organ consists of three manual divisions (Great, Swell, and Choir) and the Pedal division. Each division has its own keyboard on the console.

The GREAT DIVISION is on the left side of the chancel. It consists of 13 ranks of pipes (793 pipes) and seven ranks of digitally reproduced pipe recordings, including flutes, trumpets and a set of chimes.

The  SWELL DIVISION is on the right side of the chancel and consists of eight ranks of pipes (488 pipes) and 13 ranks of digitally reproduced pipes. The Swell division is located within a large wooden chamber with vertical shades that open and close to control the volume of the pipe sounds.

The CHOIR DIVISON consists of 19 ranks of digitally reproduced pipes, including violins, flutes, piccolos, bassoons, horns, trumpets, and a harp.

The ANTIPHONAL DIVISION consists of 7 ranks of digitally reproduced pipes played on the manual keyboards and the pedals and is located at the rear of the sanctuary to provide an even distribution of sound throughout the sanctuary.

The PEDAL DIVISION consists of two ranks of pipes (64 pipes) and 55 ranks of digitally-reproduced pipes that are mostly very low-pitched pipes needed to reinforce congregational singing. These low-pitched sounds would have required pipes that are 16 or 32 feet long (which would not fit into our chancel space). There are eight ranks of digital pipes where the longest pipe in the rank would be 16 feet long and three ranks of digital pipes. where the longest pipe would be 32 feet long.

In addition to the low-pitched pipes, the other digitally-reproduced pipes are included to produce a wide variety of organ sounds for variety, versatility, and color to play a broad range of organ literature. Our consultant, Monte Maxwell, organist at the U.S. Naval Academy, described this as the "ability to play sounds ranging from the softest and sweetest all the way to the handsome, round sound of a full organ."
