St Michael & All Angels Church, Gordon Hill, Enfield

St Michael & All Angels, Enfield are looking for an Organist from 1st January 2020 to succeed the present Organist, who is retiring.

Duties include:

  • playing for the weekly Sunday morning Parish Eucharist at 10am
  • some Holy & Festival days
  • occasional weddings and funerals

  • There is a small ‘singing group’ (over which the Organist would have jurisdiction) to help lead hymn-singing and often to sing a selection of hymns during the administration of communion. It is not a trained choir, however, and there are no formal duties such as midweek choir practices.
    Current fees are £65 per standard service, £75 for funerals, £85 for weddings.
    There is a well-maintained Henry Speechly pipe organ of 13 speaking stops.
    It may be possible to arrange the post as a job share if that would prove more acceptable.
    For further information please contact the Vicar, the Rev’d Stephen Taylor tel: 020 8363 1063 or email: stephen.taylor@london.anglican.org for further details or to arrange an informal visit.
