Organist / Musical Director at St Mary the Virgin, Churston Ferrers


St Mary the Virgin Churston Ferrers, near Brixham in Devon is seeking a new Organist / Musical Director (we are willing to split the post). It has a beautiful and historic Church with an organ (more details of which can be found here); a keyboard and piano are also available.

The congregation appreciate a wide range of music and enjoy singing their hymns. The Church has a long musical tradition and had a small choir until Covid but now needs to be built back up. On three Sundays of the month there is a sung Eucharist. There is an embryonic band at the monthly “All Age Worship” the successful applicant(s) will be expected to help with the development of this.

Besides a regular service on Sunday mornings there will be a requirement to play for weddings, funerals and baptisms for which there is extra remuneration. The church also has an excellent relationship with the local C of E school and once Covid is out of the way it would like to see their choir singing in the Church, occasionally.

Remuneration will depend upon experience and will be in line with RSCM rates. For more information or to ask for an application pack please contact Rev Stephen Yates – revsryates@outlook.com
