A glorious building of cathedral-like proportions mainly dating from around 1500 at the height of Lavenham's period of prosperity as a wool-cloth manufacturing town.    The church, which incorporates a wealth of carving in both oak and stone, was financed by the Earl of Oxford - Lord of the Manor - and a number of wealthy cloth merchants, including the immensely rich Thomas Spring III.

 

ORGANIST  OR  ORGANIST & CHOIR LEADER

We are seeking to appoint an accomplished, experienced organist with a passion for church music who recognises this as a gift from God to play regularly for Sunday services and other occasional services (including weddings and funerals) and who will work in partnership with the church leadership (Clergy, Churchwardens, PCC and Ministry Team) to ensure the music of this church enhances its worship and assists in its overall mission and vision, helping us to encounter God and proclaim our faith.  Lavenham church has a long musical tradition cherished by many which we wish to maintain.
