Christ Church, East Sheen

ORGANIST

Christ Church, East Sheen (part of the Mortlake with East Sheen team ministry in south west London) is seeking an enthusiastic, talented and able musician to take up the post of permanent organist. The position will involve playing the organ at services and the exciting opportunity to develop a varied programme of musical activities and events with which to attract and engage the local community.

The successful applicant will be an outstanding organist, expected to play a range of traditional and modern worship music to accompany our Sunday, and occasional other, services.

In addition, he or she should feel confident in working with the Vicar to choose hymns and developing a wider musical programme. Wedding and funeral fees extra.

The post would suit a positive, energetic and creative person with a sound musical background embracing different musical styles and the willingness to take a lead role in connecting Christ Church with its local community using music.

The organist will be employed by the PCC that serves the Team Ministry as a whole, but will be assigned exclusively to Christ Church, and will be paid above the scale set by the Royal School of Church Music.

This appointment will play a decisive part in delivering our Mission Action Plan at Christ Church, and we warmly encourage all suitable candidates to apply.
