St. John the Evangelist, Princes Street, Edinburgh

Church of St. John the Evangelist, Princes Street, Edinburgh

Organist and Director of Music required from October 2018

St. John’s is seeking to appoint a new Director of Music in the Autumn of 2018. This person would be a gifted organist and choir trainer, who would further enhance our strong choral tradition, maintaining our extensive repertoire as well as exploring new music and styles of worship.

St John’s boasts a highly proficient robed choir of some 30 adults who rehearse weekly. The Choir’s repertoire is large, singing much of the standard Anglican tradition, and is supported by a good- sized, 3-manual Organ in the heritage of Willis, which could also be used for teaching.

The musical life of the parish includes not only three sung services on a Sunday including Sung Eucharist and the weekly Anglican staples Choral Matins and Evensong, but also bigger musical events on feast days throughout the year and enhanced music during the Edinburgh Festival month of August. St. John’s is fortunate to have two very able volunteer organists within the Choir who share much of the accompanying duties.

Sample music lists from recent months can be viewed here:

Remuneration for the position of Director of Music is in line with the RSCM fee scale, while also reflecting the status and individuality of St. John’s.

St John’s is a thriving Scottish Episcopal church at the heart of Scotland’s beautiful capital city. We aim to express love for the triune God and for our neighbour in all that we do, and to help people discover for themselves the significance of Jesus Christ. St John’s has a strong emphasis on worship and prophetic witness, with a liberal catholic/broad church bent. One of our ministry team members was among the first women to be ordained priest in the Scottish Episcopal Church and last we celebrated the first same-sex marriage in an Anglican Church in the UK.
