As a teenager Samuel met and was exposed to the skillful worship leading of Kevin Prosch and combined with several profound experiences of God, he started to write songs & lead worship. Passionate about the presence of God, and songs that speak to the soul, he interned with Darren Clarke at the Burn Service in San Luis Obispo.
On returning to the UK he started to work under his father Chris Lane at the Vineyard Church St. Albans. He co-founded ‘The Burn Church’ and had his first worship song released on Vineyard Record’s Holy album produced by Brenton Brown in 2002.
Since then VRUK have published an additional 23 of his worship songs on albums such as Beautiful, All From You, My Soul Yearns and now The Fire. His songs inc. ‘Beautiful’, ‘Adore Him’ and ‘Lord You’re Near’ have been used worldwide.
Sam still works as Worship Pastor at the Vineyard Church. He’s been married to Sarah for 2 years and continues to write songs, push into the presence of God, and break new ground.
