Minor Canon Precentor

Based at Sheffield Cathedral.

This is a new role at the Cathedral and is intended as a developmental opportunity for a priest lasting 3-5 years, perhaps for someone having served their title and before their first incumbency.  

The successful candidate will play a key role in linking the worshipping life of the Cathedral with our educational ambitions, as well as seeking opportunities to refresh and resource other parts of the Diocese through the musical mission enabled by our Schools Singing Programme.

We are seeking a priest who will:

  • Work with the Dean and Director of Music to create beautiful liturgy for a diverse range of people and occasions.
  • Support our work with schools across the Diocese and be the key clergy contact for the choir and their families.
  • Be part of a clergy team who are prayerful, missional and seeking to resource the Diocese of Sheffield in a meaningful way.
