The United Presbyterian Church of Whitinsville is a loving, family oriented church with an average Sunday attendance around 100-120. UPCoW features many young families, and has a strong tradition of children education, community service and fellowship. We enjoy a variety of worship formats, and while our service currently has a more traditional feel, there is a strong desire to incorporate more contemporary music in order to meet the changing needs of our church.
About the Position
We are searching for a part time Music Director that would help shape the direction of our current music program. We have one service a week, and currently our choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings and sings two Sundays each month and at special services as available. Our Music Director would play for our Sunday Worship Service, lead the choir and help coordinate special music such as guest musicians and the kids' choir. Our desire is that our Music Director would also help with the formation of a praise band and to encourage broader congregational participation in worship.
• We are looking for a church musician with experience leading choir and with piano/keyboard skills adaptable to a variety of musical styles. Organ competency a plus.
• We are also looking for someone who is a team player, and has the ability to encourage and motivate our current volunteers as well as think creatively about how to get more people involved.
• Familiarity with and appreciation of both liturgical and contemporary worship formats would be a strong asset to bring to this position.
