Amanda Wilson


Born in Adelaide, South Australia in 1957, I have also lived in Melbourne (Vic), Canberra (ACT), Smithton (Tas), and am currently in Wollongong (NSW). I have also lived overseas in Port Moreseby (Papua New Guinea) and Karlsruhe (Germany). In my youth I did a Doctorate in medical biology and became a research scientist. I also married and had two daughters.
I was brought up in the Christian church (mainly Baptist) and at 16 accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour and was baptized and currently worship at Wollongong Church of Christ. I became involved in the church in small groups and youth ministry. In 1993 God asked me to go to theological college so I did a Bachelor of Theology and Advanced Diploma in Christian Ministry with the Churches of Christ (Aust.). My time at college radically deepened my relationship with God and gave me a strong belief in the efficacy of God's word to change people's lives.
As a female, living in Wollongong, with a passion for preaching and teaching, the opportunities for me to preach and teach have been quite limited. But interestingly God has used other musicians to teach and encourage me in returning to piano playing and that has lead me to songwriting as a means of teaching and preaching. So now I have a passion for writing songs which are clearly based on specific Biblical passages. I like many styles of music from Gregorian chants and Benjamin Britten to Led Zeppelin and Alabama3 so my music reflects this diversity of style. I recored my songs at home using Sibelius software and me! All my songs scores are available for free at and I also publish sermons scripts and Christian meditations recordings at and
