Contemporary hymn writer Stuart Townend
Roy Jenkins guest is Stuart Townend, writer of some of the best-loved hymns and worship songs being sung around the world. They’re part of the musical landscape for churches of many traditions. And if his name isn’t familiar…his music certainly is. He is the man behind such modern day classics as ‘In Christ Alone’, ‘How Deep the Father’s Love for Us’ and ‘Beautiful Saviour’. Stuart Townend’s compositions are credited with what some see as a combination rare in current writing for Christian worship - both theological depth and poetic expression…to go with singable tunes. He travels the world leading worship and performing, and he’s regularly in Wales.
