St. Francis by the Lakes Anglican Church, Lr. Sackville, is seeking a part time Music Director and pianist to join their faith family. Post pandemic, we wish someone with energy to restore and rebuild our music program and are open to new and creative ways to expand our music ministry within the parish and community.  It is estimated that this part time position will require 6-8 hours a week, depending on level of experience of the successful candidate.  The parish is currently equipped with a 22-year-old Suzuki digital piano.  

The appointee will be required to plan, select, communicate worship plans and play music for the 10am Sunday service, to align with the Sundays and festivals of the liturgical year in accordance with the Revised Common Lectionary.  The successful applicant will also be expected to play for special services requested including, but not limited to, Confirmation, Christmas Eve, Maundy Thursday, and Good Friday.  Collaboration with the Priest and Wardens will be essential.  The Music Director will submit annual music budget requests to Parish Council.  

We have a small, dedicated group of individuals that would like to return to weekly choir practice.  Additionally, we are hopeful the successful candidate will encourage others to share in music ministry in new and creative ways.  

The appointee must comply with SaFeR church requirements including submission of a valid Vulnerable Sector Check. Applications will be treated in strictest confidence, and will be received until January 31, 2023 or until the post is filled.  Start date is negotiable.
