In addition to providing music at the weekly sung services (Sung Eucharist/Choral Matins/Family Service) with the SATB robed choir, and a monthly evening service, significant opportunities exist in the recruitment of choristers for a new Junior/Youth Choir and identifying other opportunities for music within liturgy.

Remuneration subject to qualifications and experience, in agreement with RSCM rates.
