Canterbury Cathedral’s Music and Liturgy team are seeking a Music & Liturgy Volunteer to provide direct practical and administrative support to the Music & Liturgy team, working on a range of projects and tasks as required.
Candidates will ideally have an interest or experience of Anglican Liturgy and/or Choral Music, an ability to work with people of all ages and backgrounds, excellent communication skills, and a fair level of IT skills.
The Volunteer will support the work of the Music & Liturgy department in their regular duties and with preparations for two events of international significance in 2020:
- Becket2020 (the 800th Anniversary of the consecration of Becket’s shrine in the Cathedral, and the 850th Anniversary of his Martydom) and
- Lambeth2020 (the conference of all the Bishops in the worldwide Anglican Communion, which takes place around every 10 years).
This is an ongoing volunteer post. Attendance will be required according to the projects outlined. The norm would be weekly or fortnightly attendance, as required. Good timekeeping, an ability to use your own initiative and a strong commitment to honouring agreed volunteer time slots is necessary. Any necessary training will be given but an interest in Music and/or Liturgy and a capacity for effective administration are desirable.
