Stuart Townend is one of today’s leading worship songwriters. Hymns such as “In  Christ alone”, “How deep the Father’s love” and “The power of the cross” are sung in churches around the world, while the skill and depth of his lyric writing has drawn some to compare his contribution to hymnody to that of Watts and Wesley. 

Aside from writing, Stuart travels around the UK and abroad, leading worship at events and performing concerts on his own or with his band. An accomplished musician, arranger and producer, he also has years of experience in teaching and training musicians who serve in local church worship. 

Stuart has featured on numerous live albums, and to date has recorded nine solo  albums, the most recent of which is “The paths of grace”. He appears regularly on the BBC’s immensely popular Songs of Praise Programme. In June 2017 Stuart was delighted to receive from the Archbishop of Canterbury The Thomas Cranmer Award for Worship “for his outstanding contribution to contemporary worship music.” 

Stuart’s most recent project was a video and audio recording of the song “Keep you  here”, an honest and moving response to his brother’s recent journey with cancer. 

Stuart is married with three grown up children, and lives in Brighton, UK.

Stuart Townend is coming to Gilgal for one night only, this coming Wednesday 26th September 2018.

Doors open at 6.45pm for a 7.30pm start.

We're delighted to be welcoming Stuart to Gilgal Baptist Church as part of his Courage Tour.  

The concert explores the significance of courage - in all the trials of life, including issues of mental and spiritual health and his own recent personal and family experience of grief and loss. 

The format is a mixture of chat, congregational worship and performance, and Stuart will also talking about some of the songs and how they came to be written.

Some songs will be familiar, some will be new.
