Gareth Robinson: worship leader, church planter, song-writer, husband, father... planting a church in Offerton, UK after five years in the USA.

BIO

Be Glorified (2005) was recorded live at St Thomas' Church, one cold January evening. It captures the heart for God and passion for his glory that defines that church and the worship Gareth leads. One reviewer said the album 'literally throbs with exuberant praise and heartfelt adoration.'





You Alone (2003) was Gareth's first album with Kingsway Music, reviewed as 'packed with gut wrenching anthemic songs and some gentle intimate ballads all clothed in a post Britpop guitar-driven sheen'.

Described by some as an ‘anglobaptismaticostaluthedist’ he started learning to play guitar aged ten, and his passion for music, theology and faith in Jesus Christ quickly merged together. His desire in leading and teaching about worship is to help people become all God has made them to be, drawing together the ancient principles and practices of worship with the post-modern world.


He got a degree in Biblical Studies from Sheffield University and then trained as a teacher, and taught in the school system for three years. He then became Worship Director at St Thomas Church, Sheffield, UK.


This opened the opportunity to lead worship at some of the UK’s biggest conferences: New Wine, Spring Harvest, CLAN Gathering, and two of his songs being published on ‘The Best Live Worship Album... Ever!’ by EMI.


From there he moved to Community Church of Joy in Glendale, AZ where he helped change the worship from ‘presentational’ to ‘participational’. He moved to Omaha to be the worship leader at Bethany Lutheran Church in Omaha, Nebraska, USA. in December ‘08. He has since moved back to the UK with his family to plant a church in Offerton, UK, check www.glochurch.org for more.


He has a passion for writing songs – songs that not only teach people about God but also help them engage with the very heart of the Trinity as they sing. Many have been recorded and published by Kingsway Music in the UK.

 

He is married to Lizzy and they have three children.

A must have worship album for the modern age.’ - crossrhythms.co.uk


You Make Everything Work Out (2008) contains songs written during the three years at Community Church of Joy, written for the church with a desire to put theology and passion into the hearts and mouths of the people of God.
