The parish church of St Peter’s is the largest of the three churches in the vibrant West Sussex parish of Henfield with Shermanbury and Woodmancote. We are seeking an enthusiastic and gifted musician who will work with the organist at Shermanbury and Woodmancote Churches, to make a significant contribution to our worshipping life.  Sung services at St. Peter’s include a Eucharist three Sundays a month, a Non – Eucharistic All Age Service on the first Sunday, some Festivals, and quarterly Choral Evensong, which rotates around the three churches of the parish. In addition, there are a good number of weddings and funerals.

The PCC is keen for the choral tradition to be re-established at St Peter’s church, with an emphasis on developing a children’s and adult choir, and the successful candidate will be open to the opportunities for recruitment that our partnership with our Church of England Primary school brings.  

Music is an important part of our life together as a church, and the successful candidate will be someone who can embrace a broad range of musical styles. We are looking for a choir director who can recruit, develop, and encourage singers of all ages. They will develop the musical life of the church and be excited by the opportunities that this post brings. The Church organ is a 2 manual digital instrument with 31 speaking stops and was built by Eminent organs. Salary will be based on RSCM guidelines, plus fees. This post is subject to an enhanced DBS check.
