Appropriately to this bank holiday Sunday we have been told of a church in Suffolk that is in need of a church organist. Although this positen is often taken by a member of the local congregation and done for free, a fee is negotiable in this case.

If you are interested please contact OrganFax and we will put you in touch with the church.
