Stuart Townend has made one of the most valuable and long lasting contributions to contemporary Christianity with his timeless hymns and compelling lyrics. Anthems like “How Deep the Father’s Love”, “In Christ Alone” and “The Power of the Cross” are rich in poetry and theology, and defy the current fashion trends in worship music. These hymns will be sung for many generations to come.
Stuart grew up in the home of a Church Of England vicar in the north of England, but now bases in Brighton, where he moved to study literature, and where he met his wife, Caroline, and brought up their three children: Joseph, Emma and Eden.
He has enjoyed a long time songwriting partnership with Keith and Kristyn Getty. Together they have bolstered the hymn book with a fairly comprehensive collection of hymns, covering the Christian calendar and a wide range of themes.
Stuart travels to lead worship at events around the UK and abroad, sharing his distinctive style of acoustic folk.
