St James and Emmanuel has long had strength and diversity in its musical worship and this requires the oversight of a talented and committed Director of Worship. We have strong links with organisations such as the BBC, RNCM and RCO and we also have a history of broadcasting on radio and television. The week-by-week worship at St James and Emmanuel is an eclectic mix of styles from choral through to hymnody, contemporary music (i.e. Hillsongs), Gospel, Iona, Taize and more experimental forms of worship. Much of this diversity is resourced by a talented pool of volunteers. The parish has two interesting organs. The Walker Organ at St James is a magnificent free-standing mechanical action pipe organ while the organ at Emmanuel is the most broadcast organ in the world, having played host to the Daily Service on Radio 4 for well over two decades.
The key requirement for the new Director of Worship is a passion for and appreciation of diverse musical expressions of worship and an ability to motivate and organise teams of willing and friendly volunteers. The role is deliberately part-time to enable the post-holder to pursue other musical work and develop their own talents and opportunities. If you’re interested in the role then we’re interested in talking to you because each potential applicant brings something different to the table and we’re open to developing a role that fits the applicant. If you’re interested then simply get in touch with us (details above). The successful applicant would find themselves part of a very friendly, supportive and fun staff team who look out for each other and a really great church family. There is much to enjoy here in Didsbury and the successful applicant will undoubtedly find their musical abilities and talents used to the full. We look forward to hearing from you.
