The Organs of Emmanuel are by Henry Willis and Sons Ltd. There are two instruments, playable from one console. The West end instrument, Henry Willis 3, was originally built for the Seventh Church of Christ, Scientist, Kensington. It was removed in the 1980s and finally installed at Emmanuel in 1999. The Apse Organ (at the east end) instrument was build in 2001 and is a 72-note chest so that maximum colour is available within the small space available.  The instrument was officially opened during 2002. The east end division is designed to accompany the traditional repertoire of English Church music. The organ console was originally that of the Crypt Chapel of St. Paul's Cathedral. 

These instruments replaced an earlier organ, by Kingsgate Davison which, installed in 1947, had become unreliable and inadequate for the music needs of the church. With only a west end instrument the accompaniment of the two choirs was far from satisfactory.

The organs are used regularly for choral servces, concerts, recitals, and teaching.
