Project Manager - RSCM Hymnpact!®

Hymnpact!® is an exciting new project providing high quality, flexible hymn resources to schools and churches in a fresh approach to Christian music.  Hymnpact! offers a positive and practical solution for bridging the gap between traditional church music and the styles of music most children encounter in school today, offering children a pathway into spiritual development and the worshipping community through singing. 

This new role is an opportunity to lead the development and implementation of this project.  After the isolation of the pandemic, with the decline of music provision in schools and decreasing church attendance, Hymnpact! offers a new way to nurture the spiritual development of children through song. 

Hymnpact! will work with local Church of England schools and parishes, initially within the Diocese of St. Albans, to create a “School to Church Pathway”. 

You will be responsible for delivering a project that enables parishes and schools to work together.  You will work with local parishes, schools and diocesan staff, facilitating workshops and helping to develop materials for sharing approaches and best practice. 

You will have a talent for managing projects and understand the value of working with stakeholders and  partners.  You will be able to implement timely and effective reporting to drive progress and develop creative solutions.  You will know how to embed feedback and learning into projects to create sustainable and replicable approaches. 

Familiarity with the work of parish churches would be an advantage and experience of working with schools would be helpful but neither is essential.  Above all, you will be passionate about the power of singing to bring people together.
