Organist and Praise Group Leader

(Job share and flexible working also considered)

Fairmilehead Parish Church, Edinburgh has begun a new journey of ministry, and we are seeking an Organist to join us to direct and develop our Praise Group and to accompany congregational worship on organ and digital piano, for the blend of both traditional hymns and contemporary songs which we enjoy on a Sunday.

We are a large, forward looking Church of Scotland congregation with a good attendance at our one service of worship at 10.30 am on Sundays.

We have an active and enthusiastic Praise Group which includes 6 -12 singers with both male and female voices and a small number of musicians. The Praise Group currently rehearses on Sunday mornings, prior to worship, from 9.30am to 10.15 am.

The organ is a two manual, mechanical action, classical instrument built by Lammermuir Pipe Organs in 1989 which was remodelled in 2003 with a Trumpet Stop added. We also have a new digital piano.

We offer fees in accordance with the scales recommended by The Scottish Federation of Organists dependent on skills and experience.
