Frenchay Music Posts 

An exciting opportunity has arisen at Frenchay Parish Church, where we seek Christian musicians to fulfil the roles of:

1) Senior (11 – 18’s) & Adult Choir Director,

2) Junior Choir (7 – 11’s) Leader and

3) Organist.

It is possible that some of these roles may be combined, and we would be interested in discussing options with candidates interested in one or more of these roles.

We are a family friendly church with a robed Senior & Adult choir (RSCM affiliated) and thriving Junior Choir, numbering approx.

25 children and 20 adults. These assist in leading worship at Sunday morning services, including the Sung CW Eucharist and twice monthly at All Age services. Choristers follow the

RSCM “Voice for Life” training scheme. In addition the choir enjoy singing at various special occasions during the year, including Choral Evensong, concerts and annual Cantata.

Considerable investment has been made in our music in recent years. Our original pipe organ was replaced in 2013 by a new “combination organ” (pipes and digital) inside the existing organ case, using much of the old pipework with a new detached console. A brand new Roland electric piano has recently been purchased. New choir robes have been provided, and

an extensive music library has been built up.

We seek musical leaders with a personal Christian faith and proven musical ability, who are keen to cherish the Anglican choral tradition but also open to wider musical horizons. You will need to be a team player, able to encourage and train adults and/or children in weekly practices to participate and grow in their faith and musical ability.

Rev. Charles Sugden, our Rector, is keen to work with those who would see themselves as partners in mission and ministry.

Choir practices are on Fridays during term time at 6.15 – 7pm Junior Choir with Voice for Life 7pm – 7.20pm; 7.30pm – 9pm Senior & Adult Choir.

Please see the church website for further information about choirs and music at Frenchay.

Please contact the Churchwarden, Mrs Sylvia Perry to enquire further, and/or obtain personal profiles and job descriptions for these posts commencing in September 2019.
