Stuart is known and respected around the world as one of the leading worship songwriters of his generation. The depth of lyrical and theological content in songs such as In Christ alone, How deep the Father’s love, The power of the cross and Beautiful Saviour have caused some to draw comparisons with the greats of previous generations such as Watts and Wesley; while the marriage of great lyrics with wonderfully accessible melodies (largely through his successful writing partnership with Keith Getty) means his songs bridge different musical and cultural genres, and reach into every corner of the globe.
Stuart is also a gifted worship leader, musician, recording artist and seminar speaker, and spends a good part of his year leading worship at major Christian events, doing solo concerts, recording studio albums, and training emerging worship leaders and songwriters. He has featured on numerous live worship albums down the years, in addition to his solo albums - Say the Word (1997), Personal Worship (1999), Lord of Every Heart (2002), Monument to Mercy (2006), The Best of Stuart Townend - Live (2007), and There is a Hope CD & DVD (2008). His latest album, Creation Sings, was released in May 2009.
As part of his Northern Ireland Tour Stuart Townend and band will be playing at Ballysillan Presbyterian Church on Friday 23 September at 7:30pm with doors opening at 7:00pm.
