Organist – Parish of Dunkeld

Dunkeld Parish Church

The Parish of Dunkeld (Church of Scotland) is looking to appoint an organist.

Regular Sunday Worship is at 11am. (there is a small group of singers who contribute to the service. It is our desire to see this develop.)

There are other occasional Sunday services through the year which the organist would be expected to play at (Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Holy Week etc.)

From Easter Sunday until Remembrance Sunday we worship in the Medieval Dunkeld Cathedral and over the winter in Little Dunkeld Kirk.

The Cathedral has a fine two manual Bevington Organ, expertly reconditioned by Sandy Edmonstone.

Little Dunkeld has a small two-manual pipe organ which was out of commission for a number of years and was restored to working order about 15 years ago.

Music has a long-established part in the life of the congregation and wider community in Dunkeld. It could be an important aspect of outreach into the community too. The community of Dunkeld also has a very strong folk tradition which has grown in recent years.

We are looking for someone:

· Suitably qualified and/or experienced.

· Enthusiastic about the musical side of worship.

· Open to all types of music.

· Who is a ‘team player’ with good people skills.

· Able to lead and work with a choir and develop other voluntary musicians.

The salary will be based on the scale proposed by the Scottish Federation of Organists. Dunkeld Cathedral has a considerable number of weddings which can enhance the organist’s income. (Around 20-30 per year.)

For more information contact the minister, Fraser Penny on 01350 727249 or

Applications should be submitted to the Session Clerk, Mrs. Christine McNicoll –
