An exciting opportunity for an experienced candidate to lead, develop and enrich the musical heritage of St George’s, and provide vision and direction in creating a musical strategy for the future, both within the church, and in its outreach to the community.

We are seeking a candidate who:

St George’s, located in the heart of the city, is a friendly, diverse, and welcoming church, with inclusive worship in the catholic tradition. We have a strong choral tradition, with an SATB robed choir, including junior choristers. We are blessed with an impressive four-manual Lewis organ, enriching the music at the heart of our main worship.
