Choir Director and Organist

South West

Organisation: West Hill Church

West Hill PCC are seeking a Choir Director and an 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 integrated church hall with a full  kitchen and a disabled lavatory.  The church has recently been equipped with a full AV and sound system. West Hill is in the Exeter Diocese and part of the Otter Vale Mission Community. The regular congregation is around 50 increasing to over 200 for the main Christian festivals.

Choir Director
There are currently six Sunday services each month, four with music [two Holy Communion] and two said HC services.  There is a robed choir of about a dozen singers who accompany three of the services.  The choir leads the congregation and occasionally sings an anthem but with greater contributions for special services. Services at the principal festivals are naturally fuller.  Currently the choir practise once a week.  

The organ is an Allen, 2 manual, digital organ with 42 stops.  It is maintained in excellent order.  The organist generally plays four Sundays a month but a relief arrangement is possible. Weddings and funerals will be by separate arrangement. A rota of organists is possible if there is an interest from two or three people in committing to less than four Sundays a month.
