Vacancy for Director of Music.

Our village church needs a leader who will direct and develop our music for worship.  We have a small choir, several accomplished instrumentalists, an organ and an electronic keyboard – and a vision that worship should inspire our mission.  As well as playing for services on Sundays and major festivals, administering and recording church music, you would encourage others in using their gifts in music and help the incumbent to select music for worship.   An ability to work with children and young people (for which an enhanced DBS check will be required) is desirable.  An Occupational Requirement has been established for the post holder to be a practising Christian in accordance with the Equality Act.
