About Stuart Townend
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. The skill and depth of his lyric writing has drawn some to compare his contribution to hymnody to that of Watts and Wesley.
The son of a Church of England vicar in Sowerby Bridge, West Yorkshire, Stuart was the youngest of four children. His father, Rev. John Townend, was vicar of Christ Church, Sowerby Bridge from 1974 until his death in a motor accident in 1985. Townend started learning to play the piano at age 7. At the age of 13, he made a Christian commitment, and began songwriting at age 22.
At university, he met Caroline, whom he married in 1988. They now have three children; Joseph, Emma and Eden.
Townend has performed at many Christian events and festivals over the years
Townend has led worship and performed at events across the world. He has sang at many conferences and festivals including the Stoneleigh Bible Week in the early 1990s to early 2000s, Mandate, Keswick Convention, Spring Harvest and many more. He has also featured on Songs of Praise and worked alongside other high-profile Christian musicians including Keith Getty, Lou Fellingham and Phatfish.
In 2005, Cross Rhythms magazine described Townend as “one of the most significant songwriters in the whole international Christian music field”. The Christian website Crosswalk.com commented that, “the uniqueness of Townend’s writing lies partly in its lyrical content. There is both a theological depth and poetic expression that some say is rare in today’s worship writing”.
