Vacancy: Temporary Organist/Pianist for St Mary the Virgin, Denbury, near Newton Abbot

We are seeking a part-time or casual organist/pianist to play a Yamaha digital Clavinova or our 1843 organ built by H. Dicker of Exeter. You will work as part of a team of 3 so will certainly not have to commit to playing at all our services.

The book of Common Worship is used for all our services and there are three Sunday Eucharist services each month commencing at 9.15am. Additional services on the 2nd and 5th Sunday may occur from time to time as well as festivals, one-off services, weddings and funerals.
Remuneration is by negotiation based on RSCM rates.

If you are interested in the above role please contact our Churchwarden Steve Bassett on 01803 812537.
