Director of Music / Organist




South West

Job Description

The Parish Church of St Andrew, Colyton, East Devon


For September 2017


Following the retirement of the Director of Music, we seek a gifted and collaborative musician to join our ministry team. We wish to enhance our strong choral tradition, maintaining our extensive repertoire and exploring new music and styles of worship.


Our robed choir of 30 adults and children, strong in all four parts, affiliated to the RSCM, is recognized as one of the best in the South West. A bursary fund supports the musical education of the choir, especially younger members. Choristers regularly attend RSCM courses and work towards awards. The organ is a resourceful
3 manual instrument, suitable for teaching.


Remuneration for this post which includes Sunday services (Choral Eucharist on 3/4 Sundays each month, Choral Evensong once a month), special services, Mission Community services, concerts and weekly choir practices (currently Friday evenings), will be negotiable in line with RSCM rates. There are about ten weddings and
twenty-five funerals each year.


For more information, please contact: Revd Hilary Dawson
