Organ tuning

How often does an organ need to be tuned?

My church just got a postcard saying our organ is due for a tune-up. The last time it was tuned is March of 2005. We don't use the organ very often: I am a pianist so I just fake it on the organ for the older hymns and service music. I don't know anything about the inner workings of the organ, like what it is exactly that they are tuning, or how they go about it doing it. All I know is that it is expensive, and we don't have much of a budget right now. How necessary is it for an organ to be tuned regularly?
