Precentor Vacancy

Leicester Cathedral serves both church and wider society. We welcome many worshippers and visitors. We host many special occasions. We provide a window into the arts through stunning choral music and thought provoking exhibitions. We explore Christian faith, history and the contemporary dilemmas of our day.

Canon Precentor

We need someone to oversee worship, music, spirituality and discipleship.

Our liturgy is dignified yet relaxed, in our building and online, traditional and innovative in our response to our multi-cultural city and our rural and ex-industrial county. We will complete our re-ordering and provide a new Chapter House through Leicester Cathedral Revealed with much disruption and opportunity in the next 3 years.

We welcome applications from all and especially from BAME candidates. We wish to be surprised by who God might call.
