The UK’s definitive Christian & Gospel Music Awards

The Step FWD Awards will be as much about honouring UK history and legacy across the past 40 years as it will be about recognising the talent of the last 12 months. Another significant aspect of the Step FWD Awards is that it will follow in the unique and dedicated work of the UK Christian Charts, in bringing together genres, styles, nations.

AStepFWD has had the privilege of running the UK Christian Charts for over 8 years now and since August 2020, operating with a 12 category chart system spanning the likes of Contemporary Worship and Gospel to genres such as Reggae, Pop, Rap, Afrobeat to Indie / Folk / Acoustic. 4,400+ tracks have been processed to date from over 600 hundred new and established artists. The UKCC is a public voting system running in tandem with a judging panel comprising over 150 top influencers and platforms in the UK Christian music industry. 

Step FWD Awards is very focused on honouring and aims to live up to Romans 12 verse 10:

“Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honour.”

Following in from a hugely successful debut initiative last year, this awards event is set to celebrate and honour many incredibly talented individuals, all working for God’s glory to bring the gospel message to people through use of their various skills and art forms.

The Step FWD Awards also plays a pivotal role in bridging the gap between creatives and music lovers; young and old, black and white, Gospel and CCM and everything in-between.

Continuing in its trailblazing fashion, A Step FWD has once again committed to producing something special whilst maintaining the core objectives of:

1. Bridging the genre divide that exists

2. Bridging the intergenerational gap
