Rev. Mark Ainsworth
St. Nicholas Church
To accompany weekly church services and direct the choir. There are four different types of service each month: 1st Sunday traditional Eucharist using Merbecke, 2nd Sunday Family Service, 3rd Sunday a modern Eucharist, 4th Sunday BCP sung matins. The Music Director has ownership of the music repertoire and there is a small but enthusiastic SATB choir which may be augmented for special services and concerts.
The holder of the post is entitled to play at weddings and funerals at St. Nicholas, and may be invited to do so at the other 4 parishes within the benefice.
We are a friendly church 3 miles outside Henley holding Sunday services at 10.30 am.
Choir practice is on Fridays (or evening to be arranged) at 8-9pm, often followed by a jar in the Maltsters Arms next door. The organ is a two-manual Walker extension organ built in 1974 with 28 speaking stops and a 30-note pedal board.
We cherish our music tradition but are open to new ideas to enhance the spiritual and musical life within our church.
