Director of ‘Choir Church’
for St James’ Church, Milton, Portsmouth
Our vision is to help a large vibrant parish to start choirs for children and young people. We wish to use the evangelistic nature of music in worship to grow a new congregation, showing that a liturgical and sacramentally based church can succeed alongside other forms of church planting.
Portsmouth Cathedral and St James’ Church, Milton wish to appoint a Director to set up choirs for children and young people based at St James’. There are exciting opportunities to work with schools in the parish and our aim is to create a vibrant community of young families that integrate into the life of St James’ though their involvement in music.
To arrange an informal discussion please contact: Dr David Price, firstname.lastname@example.org
