Stuart Townend is a British Christian worship leader and writer of hymns and contemporary worship music. His songs include "In Christ Alone" (2002, cowritten with Keith GettyDebra Akins, " [http://www.crosswalk.com/faith/worship_center/1275127.html Song Story: "In Christ Alone"] ", www.crosswalk.com, accessed 1 May 2005] ), "How Deep The Father's Love For Us", "Beautiful Saviour" and "The King Of Love"Tony Cummings, [http://www.crossrhythms.co.uk/articles/music/Confronting_The_Comfort_Zones/14571/p1/ "Confronting The Comfort Zones"] , "Cross Rhythms" 85, March 28th 2005] .

As of 2008, CCLI lists the popular "In Christ Alone" in its Top 25 CCLI Songs list. 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".

Townend, son of a Church of England vicar in Halifax, West Yorkshire, was the youngest of four children. He studied literature at the University of Sussex. Townend started learning to play the piano at age 7 [http://www.bbc.co.uk/religion/religions/christianity/features/hymn/judges/stuart_townend.shtml "Biography of Stuart Townend"] , BBC Religion and Ethics, 2004, accessed 1 May 2005] . At the age of 13, he made a Christian commitment, and began songwriting at age 22.
