Organists who like to play jazz and blues on the organ (yes, that's possible and perfectly legitimate!) use the Blues Mode all the time. Watch this video and I hope you will feel compelled to incorporate it in your organ playing.
It's fun but I don't advice it for Communion and other parts of the liturgy (unless you know how to create a religious feeling with it) because it has a certain worldly association with it (except when it comes naturally for your denomination). However, it could be used for concert music very effectively.
