Worship - Frances Novillo

Worship

Church

Frances was resident musician on Iona in 2000, then worked as a music co-ordinator in parishes of the Diocese of Westminster for nearly 20 years, as a cantor leading congregational singing, directing choirs and instrumentalists, and accompanying on piano, guitar, and organ.  She was awarded ARSCM from the Royal School of Church Music in 2016 for her work coordinating music in many styles at large-scale events and her contribution to training clergy in different Christian denominations.  Frances remains available to design and direct liturgy and music for conferences and special occasions.

Community

Frances is now working full-time in chaplaincy, and is a skilled and sensitive Chaplain with experience in retail, business, hospital and emergency services (blue-light) chaplaincy.  She practises as a Pastoral Supervisor and has a Masters Degree in Psychology of Religion.  Frances built up a range of experience over many years leading community music-making in churches, with congregations of all ages and sizes, and also in secular contexts with participants with age-related illnesses, physical and learning disabilities, and sensory impairment.  

Significant events

Frances directed the music at Migrants' Masses in Westminster and Southwark Cathedrals, drawing together the talents and songs of many migrant communities across London.  Frances has coordinated music and liturgy at many conferences, including gatherings of religious orders, clergy conferences, Greenbelt festival, Churches Together in Britain and Ireland national assembly, and for the Retreat Association.  Frances was a cantor at the Papal Mass in Cofton Park in 2010, at Wembley Arena in 2003, and large-scale Taize worship at Bradford and Southwark Cathedrals.  

Archive and ongoing

This website is not updated frequently now Frances' work is focused on chaplaincy.  But the website remains live so you can browse the archive of articles in the blog section.  Frances continues to write for the Society of Saint Gregory Music & Liturgy journal, and in 2020 contributed articles to The God who Speaks website.
