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.


    Organ Scholarship: St John the Evangelist, Bourne Hill, Palmers Green, London N13 4DA

    St John the Evangelist, Palmers Green are looking for a talented and enthusiastic organist seeking to develop their church musicianship and liturgical awareness in a supportive and challenging environment. Working alongside our RSCM-affiliated robed choir under the patient direction of our Director of Music, the Scholar will develop the full range of skills of a church organist from hymn, plainchant and anthem accompaniment through to improvising, conducting, giving recitals and arranging music as the Scholar so wishes. We are a friendly liberal Anglican church worshipping in the catholic tradition with a lively and innovative music department. We are sure that the successful applicant will find their time at St John’s richly rewarding, and support will be given if the Scholar decides to pursue further professional opportunities within church music. Our inaugural scholar (2017-18) is currently organ scholar at Robinson College, Cambridge. Applicants should have a passion for sacred choral and organ music, and be of ABRSM Grade 5 standard on the organ (or equivalent ability) and possess a good memory for music and moderate sight-reading ability.
    For further information please contact Robert Hainault at roberthainault@gmail.com .
    Applications will be accepted until Sunday 31st March. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to interview and audition.
