Organist Vacancy, St Michael’ s Church West Hill
St Michael’ s Church is seeking a new organist.
On the west side of the Otter Valley, West Hill is a woodland village of some 2,000 residents. St Michael’s Church is an early Victorian building [centrally heated] seating 120 with an integral church hall, a full kitchen and disabled lavatory. The church has recently been equipped with a full AV system and projector/screen. West Hill is in the Exeter Diocese and part of the Otter Vale Mission Community.
There are services every Sunday, typically Holy Communion on two Sundays plus Morning Prayer and Cafe Church. In addition there are occasional ‘special’ services such as Taize, Harvest and Evensong. There are 85 members on the Electoral Roll and the regular congregation is around 50 increasing to over 200 for the main Christian festivals.
There is a small robed choir who accompany services and sing occasional anthems and additional pieces on special occasions. The choir generally practices once a week.
The organ is an Allen 2-manual digital organ with 42 stops. It is maintained in excellent order. There is also an electric piano. The organist generally plays three Sundays a month but a relief arrangement is possible. Weddings and funerals are by separate arrangement.
An enhanced DBS check will be necessary upon appointment. Remuneration will be based on RSCM rates.
