Noel Robinson - Worship Leader

For Noel Robinson - influential songwriter, recording artist and pioneer of the UK gospel music community - a commitment to local church has always played a pivotal role in his life and career which now spans 20 years of ministry.

Growing up, Noel was encouraged to contribute to Sunday worship following the example set by his father, also a musician. Noel’s early experiences within the Pentecostal church are felt in this music, effortlessly fusing contemporary worship with gospel influences. The results are truly unique–a worshipful expression embraced by believers from a myriad of ethnic and cultural backgrounds.

An award-winning artist, some of Noel’s most memorable accolades include a stint with BBC’s ‘Songs of Praise’ and the establishment of Renewal Worship Encounters.

Noel Robinson has released 6 albums to date including 2015’s ‘Outrageous Love’. He is the author of popular church anthems, ‘Rain’ and ‘You Give Me Life’ and his latest Integrity music release ‘I Surrender’ with award winning songs I Surrender, He’s Able, Faithful God and Build my life (cover) and UK radio hit ‘Arrested by your Loved.
