On Oct. 27, 1963, the Markham Memorial Carillon was dedicated at a 2:30 p.m. concert also by Lester Groom. The carillon was given in memory of William and Carrie Markham by their children: Maurice, Miriam and Ralph.

The Markham Carillon remained in use until the mid-1990's at which time parts necessary for repair became increasingly difficult to find and the sound quality deteriorated. The family of Margaret Boyd used her memorial gifts to rebuild the drum mechanism in1995. The Markham-Boyd carillon lasted until 2003. At this point, it could no longer be repaired. Mrs. Kay Parkin gifted the church with a new state-of-the-art carillon in memory of her mother, Margaret Norton, in 2004. It comes from Schulmerich, Inc. and is the Novabell Generation model which operates with digital autobel cards. A tribute to 21st Century technology.
