Stephen Kirk is an Australian Catholic composer, singer, musician and worship leader. Stephen never paid much attention to his faith until an experience of God’s presence while singing in a gospel choir in San Diego led him to seek God and come back to his faith. Since then God has taken him on a very winding road, from being the only white member of an African American church, to coming back to his Catholic faith through a lay community, (almost) becoming a Carmelite monk, marrying his wife and being blessed with six children. Stephen has helped direct the music for events for up to 70,000 people and has released various resources for the Church, including the albums “Secret Place”, “Rend the Heavens”, “Rising”, “Shadows” and “Light”, the “Hour of Grace and Mercy” kit, the Mass of the Holy Spirit and the Mass of Clare. He regularly leads and teaches on worship and liturgical music in a variety of contexts throughout Australia and overseas. Stephen’s mission is to be a witness to the presence of God by leading people into prayer through music. His music, composed for liturgy, worship, and reflection, combine the beauty and wonder of the faith with the vibrancy of youth, and first-class musicianship and production.
