About Worship Central

Founded by contemporary Christian songwriters Tim Hughes and Al Gordon in 2006, Worship Central is a Birmingham, U.K.-based organization that provides tools for the objective of expanding the worship movement across England and throughout the world. With a number of other musicians involved, including Ben Cantelon, Josh Gauton, Nick Herbert, and Luke and Anna Hellebronth, Worship Central also doubles as a popular worship band with shared songwriting and singing duties. The group released a compilation album, Lifting High, in 2009, but it was 2011's Spirit Break Out that helped put Worship Central on the mainstream map. Filled with a mix of contemporary pop and anthemic rock, Spirit Break Out reached the U.K. Top 75. Meanwhile, they recorded and released a Mandarin album featuring worship leaders from throughout Asia. Worship Central's profile rose significantly after the chart success of Spirit Break Out, and in 2013 their live album Let It Be Known also made it into the U.K. Top 75. Set Apart followed suit a year later. In 2017, the group released the studio album Mercy Road, which included additional writing contributions from the likes of Chris Tomlin and Phil Wickham. ~ Andrew Leahey
