Kat Mills is a singer songwriter from Surrey, United Kingdom. She grew up with a classical music background – her father a conductor and her mother an oboist. This gave her a rich cultural experience from a young age. Always passionate about singing, Kat was classically trained and has developed her repertoire to include singing musical theatre, pop and jazz. In addition to singing, Kat plays piano and cello – she writes predominantly on the piano. Writing comes as second nature – something that she does to work through life’s situations.
She trained as a Primary School teacher specialising in Music at Canterbury Christ Church, but is currently a stay at home mum. She loves finding new ways of using music to connect with people, and has led the singing in her Church toddler groups as well as running a songs and stories class for 0-4 year old’s. She is also currently working with a local community choir called ‘Inspire’, and does gigs with her husband Ali singing a range of well known music, her own songs and sharing her testimony and faith.
Her heart is to encourage people in worship and point them towards Jesus no matter what. She loves encouraging new talent, especially budding songwriters, and mentoring young worship leaders. Kat Mills Ministries was set up last year to help encourage worship leaders and teams, pay for training and worship course attendance and aims to encourage and feed into new Christian artists. She and her husband Ali have started working with and encouraging Church worship teams.
Kat released her debut album ‘Out of the Ashes’ in May 2015 which comprises eight songs combining congregational worship and songs that encourage people in their walk with God.
Her second album ‘Voice of truth’ was released in June 2016. This is a Contemporary Christian album with eleven songs looking at speaking God’s truth into ours lives.
She is currently writing her 3rd contemporary christian album, whilst also working on a live worship album.
Kat also writes a regular blog for her website, and has just started writing a monthly blog for Cross Rhythms.
She is currently a student on 10000 fathers worship school and in the process of creating some worship resources to help people walking through long term illness and loss.
She lives in Surrey with her husband and son and is a worship leader at Worcester Park Baptist Church. They are also involved in leading some monthly worship and prayer nights called Refresh, and a monthly evening service called Timeout at Stoneleigh Baptist Church.
