Part-time music worship leader Barclay Viewforth

Barclay Viewforth Church (BVC) is seeking a part-time music worship leader who is a gifted musician, worship leader, and team leader. 
We’re seeking to create a worship experience, where worshippers are drawn in and become active participants in worship. BVC has a long history of talented organists playing for services and, in more recent years, a band has played mainly for our more informal evening services but increasingly during morning services also. We currently have an organist to cover the morning services and our new person will also share in morning services.  We value creativity and the arts, and seek to nourish the faithful while also reaching out to a hurting world and we see worship as vital to that.
