The 4-manual Mixtuur Virtual Pipe Organ was installed in 2016 and is supplemented by a grand piano and an upright piano.

The person appointed will be responsible for playing for Sunday morning services, occasional ‘special’ services, Thursday evening choir practices, and continuing the musical tradition at major Christian festivals, which may include bringing together other musicians, instrumentalists and soloists.

Salary – £7000 p.a.
