  Job Description
Heritage Events Coordinator Internship
St Marylebone Parish Church, London, NW 1 5LT

Church and Project Background
St Marylebone Parish Church is a place of active and engaged Christian witness, set at the very heart of central London. We are also a hospitable venue for education, cultural events of national and international significance and room hire. In all these things we aim to achieve the highest standards of welcome, service and delivery.

We host high profile services throughout the year as well as many conferences and meetings. A large number of internationally famous people are welcomed regularly to the church to a variety of events and services.

With a history stretching back more than 900 years, we seek to offer God worship that has long been renowned for its musical and liturgical excellence.

For more than 30 years, located as we are just a few metres from Harley Street, we have pioneered the work of Christian healing and, as well as being home to the internationally respected Healing and Counselling Centre, which offers low-cost psychotherapy and spiritual direction, our Crypt houses an innovative NHS doctor’s surgery with a 10,000 strong patient list. Our healing work is enhanced by our close links with some of medicine’s Royal Colleges and through chaplaincy at The London Clinic, The Cleveland Clinic, London and King Edward VII’s Hospital.

We have a flourishing Young Church which complements the work of our two schools: The St Marylebone Church of England School, an Outstanding Academy, National Teaching School and Maths Hub, and The St Marylebone Church of England Bridge School, a Free Special School which works with secondary school age students who have speech, language and communication difficulties. Alongside our two schools we have strong ties to the Royal Academy of Music, the University of Westminster and Regent’s University.

The next stage in the development of St Marylebone Parish Church is a National Lottery Heritage funded project titled, St Marylebone: Changing Lives. This project, as well undertaking essential fabric repairs and upgrading, also involves the delivery of a substantial and creative heritage programme involving local communities, businesses and stakeholders. It showcases and shares the story of St Marylebone and the larger Marylebone area, north of Oxford Street, with art, music, cinema, multi-media, heritage craft skills, cookery and much more.

The St Marylebone: Changing Lives received confirmation of funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund in 2019 and is now well into the delivery phase of the project.

The key project aims and objectives are:

• A new slate roof covering with lead gutters/flat roofs, with repaired structure and roof insulation
• Undertake urgent repairs to historic fabric including rainwater goods and stonework, ensuring safety and water tightness of the building.
• Restore, conserve, and catalogue significant artefacts, artworks, records, glass, plasterwork and furnishings
• Underpin the long-term sustainability of the church with Crypt Hall improvements and East/West corridor access behind the hall, securing income-generating capacity.
• Provide St Marylebone Parish Church with the facilities that its needs to function as Marylebone’s foremost historic public space for the whole community by delivering the following:
- refurbish existing crypt space to provide facilities for exhibitions, seminars, workshops, lectures, music;
- space for pop up catering-based events in order to support entrepreneurship and homeless women into self-supporting lives, hosting regular heritage inspired events.
• Create a catalytic community ‘buzz’ through delivering programmes built on the area’s unparalleled millennium of heritage, attracting new audiences and connecting Marylebone’s contrasting, disparate and increasingly divergent communities in meaningful interactions and shared experiences.
• Deliver exciting, innovative and surprising reinventions of archive material, cocreated with community partners to illuminate our interpretation themes through the Activity Plan;
• Introduce the people’s musical folk tradition of St Marylebone alongside a strong live music legacy of church and conservatoire.
• Offer opportunities into employment through archive interpretation and venue management training placements.

1. Project and Task Description
The St Marylebone PCC has successfully achieved a Round 2 pass from the Heritage Lottery Fund to develop the parish church as a heritage and cultural venue in addition to being a place of worship. The Heritage Events Coordinator Internship (HECI) will be working with us to deliver our events programme for the next year. The HECI will work closely alongside the Changing Lives team and be supported by:

• Project & Activity Manager, Heritage, Learning and Communication Facilitator, Visitor & Volunteer Coordinator, and Director of Development.
• Members of the active parish community, in particular members of the congregation.
• Other project staff appointed to deliver the activity and interpretation plan.

The HECI role will report to the Project & Activities Manager (P&AM) and be supervised by the Visitor & Volunteer Coordinator (V&VC), who will conduct regular reviews on the candidate’s performance in terms of achievements, conduct and future development.

The emphasis of the internship is on on-the-job-learning often focussed on tasks or projects with defined timescales. The candidate is expected to develop confidence in working in the cultural heritage sector.

As an essential component of the Heritage Fund Activity Plan, the HECI will be responsible for covering historical research, supporting heritage open days, music and performance events, and generating interest in the project through marketing and social media.


The internship has a six months’ duration, and the V&VC will arrange an induction and will introduce you to the organization. The V&VC will also act as a mentor to give you more informal support and guidance, to act as the first point of contact for concerns, and to support you on site.

2. Key Tasks
• Build on progress to-date supporting the Changing Lives team with heritage research, heritage events, and activities planned for 2022.
• To contribute to the planning, development and delivery of different types of events, including large scale events such as the St Marylebone Festival
• To help delivering a variety of different events, from planning and preparation to setting up and running activities on the day.
