ADVERTISEMENT: DIRECTOR OF MUSIC,
EMMANUEL EPISCOPAL CHURCH, GENEVA, SWITZERLAND

 

Emmanuel Episcopal Church, Geneva, Switzerland, is seeking a new Director of Music.

 

Based in the heart of the French-speaking city of Geneva, our congregation’s primary language is English but our community is international, reflecting many different linguistic, cultural and faith backgrounds. We seek a Director of Music who can not only help us continue to develop our music ministry, but who can engage in the musical life of Geneva, thereby bringing new musicians to our church.

 

Music (particularly choral music) plays a critical role in the worship experience of our parishioners, who are accustomed to a musical repertoire consisting of a mix of traditional and contemporary hymns and sacred music, along with Spirituals and African music. We currently have two choirs: one that is largely a traditional Episcopal / Anglican choir, and an African Singing Group. However, there are many members of our congregation who are eager to participate more fully in the musical life of our church. We hope to find a new Director of Music who can make this possible by engaging more people, especially younger parishioners, in actively participating in the musical life of Emmanuel, most especially in the choirs. Our choirs are fortunate to be supported by a magnificent organ, which plays a central role in our musical ministry.

 

The ideal candidate for this position is a musician who is not only an experienced choral director, a talented congregational music leader, and a skilled organist and pianist, but also a committed liturgical partner for our Rector and Deacon. Through this partnership, we hope to continue to use music to support our congregation’s worship, draw others to the church, and honor God.

 

If you have the musical skills, energy, creativity and spiritual commitment we seek, we hope you will apply for this position. Details concerning the application procedure, the responsibilities of the position, and the characteristics we are looking for are included below. Further information regarding the responsibilities of the position and the qualities of the sought-after candidate may be found here.

 

Please note: It will be necessary to establish that you have the right to work in the Canton of Geneva, Switzerland. The job offered is for 18 hours a week so this will have to be supplemented in other ways.

 

POSITION TITLE: Director of Music

 

AVAILABILITY: As soon as possible; start date to be negotiated

 

REPORTS TO: The Rector

 

WORK SCHEDULE: 18 hours per week

 

SALARY:  From CHF 33,000 per annum, to be determined in relation to applicant’s experience; possibilities of additional remuneration for special services, weddings, funerals, etc. 

 

VACATION: Paid leave for four weeks, to be scheduled in consultation with the Rector. Additional personal leave may be taken with the Rector’s agreement.

 

APPLICATION PROCEDURE: Please email a cover letter, CV, the names and contact details of two references, and evidence of your right to work in the Canton of Geneva Switzerland (e.g. Swiss passport, Swiss work permit) to the Rector at rector@emmanuelchurch.ch no later than 31 May 2024. Interviews will be held in person in Geneva in either May or June.

 

If you would like to discuss this post, please contact the Rector, the Rev. Michael Rusk, by email: rector@emmanuelchurch.ch.

Joining in and helping others, and being helped if you need it

There are many ways to join in the life of the church:  some by helping others inside our community, building a strong group of people who are ready to reach out to others; and some by directly giving time and energy to those in obvious need: the hungry, refugees etc.

"Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."

There is a place for everyone: gardeners, singers, writers, camera operators, washers of dishes . . . look here to see how you can use your talents to make a better world.

Help others by volunteering with us:

The "Jardin de Monbrillant" feeds 300, or more, people in need each day.  We contribute one day each month. 
 

Our next participation in the Jardin de Montbrillant will take place on Saturday June 22nd. We will be working from 8:30 to 13:00, but you can contribute whatever time you have. 

Every Wednesday at 15:00, Tea and Refreshments are provided for Refugees, in the Parish Hall, as part of our Welcoming Project.  Volunteers are welcome for this and our other projects, which have included French Classes and an English Language "Camp" for children.  Use this link to sign up, or ask for further details.
