The Scottish Federation of Organists


Due to the present Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis it is obviously impossible to predict what the situation for church organist appointments will be in the future.  Meantime, congregations and others are welcome to contact us on publications@scotsorgan

Barrhead St Andrews Parish Church

Our long-term Lead musician has recently moved away, and we are looking to recruit a new and enthusiastic Worship Team Leader to help us move forward. As a congregation, we like the balance of traditional and more contemporary worship, and are therefore looking for someone who is comfortable with a range of styles and with leading on both organ and piano. We used to have a worship band some years ago under a previous worship leader, and are keen to develop in this area again over the coming years.

We are an open and inclusive congregation and committed to developing the gifts of everyone in our worship and service. We are open to new ideas and styles and want you to bring your own vision to create and shape our sung worship and music in new ways. Above all, we are looking for an individual to help us to express our worship of God.

We are equipped with an electronic Allen organ and a clavinova. We have a fully integrated AV system and we stream our services live through our website. Please feel free to check out some of our recent services on the website. We also have a small choir who sing with the congregation and will occasionally lead items of worship, for instance at Communion services, Easter and Christmas.

Remuneration will be based on the Scottish Federation of Organistsí Recommended Salary Scales published on the Church of Scotland Website (scale B). A salary in the region of £3000-£3500 is envisaged depending on skills and experience.

For further information, please contact our Minister Tim Mineard to arrange an informal chat: 0141 587 7913

To apply, please send a letter of application detailing relevant skills and experience in relation to the Job Description to the following address: Tim Mineard, 10 Arthurlie Avenue, Barrhead, G78 2BU.
