The Step FWD Awards is another highlight in that journey and a major milestone for the United Kingdom.
The ‘Dove meets Stellar’ event will be held on 27th November in the beautiful St. Paul’s Hammersmith. This definitive UK Christian and Gospel music awards will honour 40+ years of legacy whilst celebrating the ‘best of British’ talent from the last 12 months. The 12 SONG OF THE YEAR categories are:

Voting is open until midnight Wednesday 20th October 2021, with all 150+ Judges and the public getting the chance to have their final say, in which of the 131 No.1 tracks will get the 12 Song of the Year titles. Other music awards on the night will include Duo/Group, New Artist, Male and Female, Producer, and Video of the Year to name a few.
A big highlight of the night will be the honouring of many individuals, who across decades have paved the way for the current generation and on whose shoulders the Christian music industry stands. Some Outstanding Contribution recipients shall be announced soon, while Lifetime Achievement and Legacy Awards will be announced on the award night.
Step FWD Awards founder O’Neil Dennis noted, “The past year has been an extremely significant one for creatives and indeed for us. We’ve seen the musical output more than triple in spite of shows being cancelled due to the pandemic. It’s given the music industry time to reset, and very much feels like a rebirth of the UK music scene, something very special and unique is taking place.”
So don’t delay! Get involved and have your say today as we choose the UK Christian Charts – SONG OF THE YEAR!
