Britannia United Church is seeking a Music Director/Choir leader. We are a vibrant, loving, diverse and inclusive community in the West End of Ottawa.
Our choir, with 15-20 enthusiastic members, sing a wide range of music, from traditional, gospel and praise, to the occasional show tune. We practice on Thursday evenings and for a half-hour on Sunday mornings.
The sanctuary has a well-maintained electronic organ and a piano that the congregation requires be played on a regular basis. The Music Director chooses the weekly anthems based on themes provided by our minister, and participates in choosing hymns and planning services with the Worship Committee every six weeks. He or she will also encourage and support vocal and instrumental music offerings by members of the congregation. In addition, there are regular meetings with the Ministry & Personnel Committee to evaluate past achievements and explore a vision for the future.
This is a paid, contract position for 10-12 hours a week; remuneration commensurate with experience and qualifications as described in the RCCO Salary Guidelines. Job sharing is a possibility if we are unable to fill all our needs with one person.
Applications will be received until October 30, 2017 or until the post is filled. Please direct inquiries or applications to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our congregation’s profile is available at www.britanniaunitedchurch.ca.
