The eldest of four children, Kathryn Scott was born in 1974 into a wonderful Christian family, where music played a key role. Her father, Roy, was the sound engineer; and her mother, Mildred, the soloist for a well-known evangelist in the U.K. during the '80s.
After growing up in Northern Ireland, Kathryn went on to study theology at Elim Bible College in England, where she earned an honors degree in Theology and Christian Ministry, and met and married Alan.
In 1996, they moved to Glasgow (where Alan is from) and became assistant pastors in a Vineyard church there. Two years later they both sensed the call of God back to Ireland to plant the Causeway Coast Vineyard Church, which they still pastor to this day.
At the same time as they were planting the church, Kathryn had the privilege of being mentored by worship leader and songwriter Brian Doerksen. In 1999, she wrote the title track for Vineyard's ground-breaking album Hungry, and sang many of the songs on that recording. No one at the time realized just how much that particular album would catch the imagination of the church at large. And for Kathryn, it was the beginning of becoming a trusted worship leader and songwriter way beyond her shores.
Since then, she has worked with Paul Baloche, singing "Your Name" and "My Hope" on his live worship albums, co-writing "You Gave Your Life Away" and more recently, "This Is Love" from Paul's Christmas album. She has been featured on several albums with Brian Doerksen, and sang "True Intimacy" on the Rend Collective's Homemade Worship album in 2012.
Kathryn has also recorded three solo albums with Integrity: Satisfy, produced by Brian Doerksen and Philip Janz; I Belong and We Still Believe, both produced by Brent Milligan. She also released an independent EP, Sing On The Battlefield -- produced by Paul Burton, and featuring a duet with Paul Baloche on a brand-new version of "We Still Believe" -- in 2014.
I Belong is a Hit!| Posted August 10, 2010
We recently performed her song 'I Belong' in worship not too long ago. The congregation responded very well to the lyrics and music. I definitely recommend her as someone to keep tabs with when choosing worship music.
