List of organists who would be willing to deputise

Please contact direct, either by telephone or by e-mail, if you require their services. To email, use the form below, selecting the intended recipient from the drop down list.
Inclusion in the list of deputies does not indicate the status of those listed regarding their safeguarding clearance or musical expertise. It is therefore the responsibility of any church engaging those listed to satisfy itself in these respects. Churches recruiting anyone to a position working with children or vulnerable adults are reminded of the need to follow the House of Bishops’ ‘Safer Recruitment’ guidelines, or other appropriate denominational guidance.

We welcome anyone wishing to act as deputy organists and would encourage anyone interested to contact us via our Contact page, selecting “General Enquiry” from the dropdown list under “Recipient”.
