Director of Music

Christ Church West Wimbledon

Location:

London and Home Counties

Salary:

£8,300-£11,000

Ref: JN011858

Our dream candidate would be someone who is willing to work collaboratively with our new Vicar to grow and develop our music offering not just at Church, but also in the community.

We are a broad Church, and our mission is to be open and inclusive. We have a 3-manual Walker pipe organ and an excellent grand piano. Christ Church is a very friendly and inclusive Church in West Wimbledon.

We are seeking a talented musician to become our Director of Music. Someone who is keen to help us develop our music offering, by growing our existing Choir, develop a Children’s choir and potentially starting a community Choir. We would also like the scope for our Director of Music to run concerts in our beautiful Church (additional fees would be paid for this). We have a group of Churches in the area who have worked together with us on this.

The position will involve playing the organ and on occasions the piano as well as running the (un-robed) choir each Sunday. We have two services on a Sunday with music, the 10.00am Holy Communion and the 6.30pm Evensong. There are also the extra services at Easter and Christmas. For Weddings, Funerals and Memorials, additional fees will be paid.

The role would suit a positive, energetic and creative person with a sound musical background. It would also be great if they have experience of leading and encouraging children and young people in taking an active part in our church music. We have a nativity every year, and music plays a big part in it.

The Director of Music will be employed by the PCC and will be paid according to Musicians’ Union guidelines. We warmly encourage all suitable candidates to apply.
