Church Organist NeededChurch Organist Needed

Sunday 30th August

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.

The venue is a small 800 year old church with a simple pipe organ. Eucharist usually consists of hymns plus a little music before and after. The service usually takes about an hour or a little less. For Evening prayer once a month it is just four hymns and lasts about 45-50 minutes.

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