Avondale United Church of Stratford, Ontario, an affirming congregation, seeks a creative and technically competent person to assume choral and keyboard music leadership in their vibrant and growing faith family. The church has a well-maintained, solid state, Walcker 3 manual organ designed and built in Germany for the sanctuary, and two grand pianos: one Steinway and one Yamaha. The Senior Choir currently has 20 – 25 voices; the Youth Choir (singing approximately once a month) currently has 6 – 8 voices. With weekly rehearsals and one Sunday service, regular meetings with staff, clergy leaders and monthly with the Worship Team, it is estimated that this part-time one year contract position will require 15 hours per week. A permanent part-time position may be available upon the successful completion of the contract at which time continuing education funds, vacation time, and a benefits package would be available. Remuneration will be commensurate with experience and qualifications.
