The Bishop of St Albans, with the Dean and Chapter, is seeking to appoint a priest to the clergy team of this busy parish church Cathedral, with particular responsibility for coordinating the liturgical and musical life of the Cathedral Community. Although the Dean has ultimate responsibility for Cathedral worship, this is deputed on a day to day basis to the Precentor. As a place of prayer and pilgrimage, liturgy and music are a key part of the Cathedral’s mission and ministry.

We are seeking a clergy colleague as our new Precentor who has a vision to ensure that our worship life reflects this and connects obviously with our key priorities including our ministry of welcome to all, and our commitments to social, racial and environmental justice. As well as ministry with and for those who come to the Cathedral, we are committed to our role to support the worshipping life and mission of our Diocese in the counties of Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, including all the schools and community groups we are connected with.

This role is for a priest who has a deep interest in worship and music of the highest quality ministering as part of the team in one of the most active Cathedral congregations in the country. This might be your first post after serving your title, or it might be a new and next step after different ministry experiences.
