The Organist/choirmaster


St James’s currently has no permanent organist and consequently seeks a new organist / choir director to support and strengthen its musical worship. The successful candidate will have a vision to sustain, and enrich our current music - ‘Ancient and Modern’.  We are looking for someone who will encourage the congregation’s singing and will play with skill and sensitivity our fine, and ​newly refurbished, 3 manual Bishop’s organ on Sundays during the 9.30 Sung Eucharist. They will also enthuse and develop the willing ​robed choir, which sings monthly and rehearses twice a month. There are approximately 12 weddings and 12 funerals/ memorial services each year.​ ​The church is affiliated to the RSCM and remuneration will be based on its guidelines.  

Further information about the post can be obtained from Revd Derek Winterburn, the Vicarage, 46 St James’s Road, Hampton Hill, TW12 1DQ.
