St Mary's Old Swinford


We are currently looking for a dynamic director of music to lead our mixed age group SATB choir which sings at 2 services most Sundays. The role is responsible for all the music of the church, including coordinating organists for services and supporting an informal music group which leads worship at a monthly family service. Organ playing an advantage but not essential as other organists are available. The choir of St Mary’s has a varied repertoire, within the Anglican choral tradition, regularly singing choral evensong, and special seasonal services at Christmas and Easter.

The ideal candidate will be an enthusiastic choir trainer, able to develop the recruitment, retention and training of children and adult choristers.

Like most churches, St Mary's is far from being just a local building in which to worship.It is also a thriving centre of Christian activities all of which contribute in many ways to the life of the church and extend the work of our Lord in the parish and elsewhere.  

We try to involve people in a variety of ways, especially those who are new to the area - you will always find a warm welcome here. If you wish to have your child baptised, be baptised yourself or prepare for confirmation you will find information on this website to explain how you go about this. We are a popular venue for weddings and our weddings section will answer any questions you may have relating to booking and organising your wedding service.  We also give details of all the exciting events and activities which take place at St Mary's, as well as some interesting information relating to our history and how to go about tracing your family through registers and the graveyard.
