St Nicholas Church
St Nicholas has a robed SATB choir with 7 adults and 5 children, and others who will join on an occasional basis along with individuals who are interested in joining if we had a permanent choir leader. The choir is informal and friendly which embraces a range of musical styles (Hymns A&M, Mission Praise, Iona, Taize, and anthems). We have made it through the COVID years intact having recorded the Nine Lessons and Carols for a CD in 2020 and for local radio in 2021 (http://www.susyradio.com/2021/12/25/carol-service-from-st-nicholas-church-godstone/). We are an RSCM choir with one member holding the Bishop's Award and three holding the Dean's Award. We are seeking a choir leader who can take further members of the choir through these awards. Currently we need an organist for one service on a Sunday, and a midweek practice although there are additional services at Christmas and Easter and on other occasions.
The successful candidate can start as soon as it is convenient.
In addition to a basic stipend the successful candidate can expect to earn additional income from weddings and funerals (last year there were 10 weddings and 19 funerals held at St Nicholas, and there were further opportunities at the other 2 churches in the Parish).
The organ is on the National Pipe Organ Register: https://www.npor.org.uk/NPORView.html?RI=N13720
