Is St Mary’s, Newton-by-the-Sea, in Northumberland, the only corrugated-steel church with a stained-glass window in the UK? How many Anglican “tin tabernacles” of this kind survive?
Some recent advertisements in the Church Times have run along these lines: “The Diocese of x seeks to appoint an organist & choir master to y parish.” I thought that the incumbent and PCC were the joint employer of organists, not the diocese. Since the new Legal Advisory Commission Guidance (C of E website), it seems that the PCC is now the employer; so how does that square with these advertisements? Who, in fact, employs organists?
