Hillsong United achieved the first number one on the Official Christian & Gospel Albums Chart with Zion.

The Official Christian & Gospel Albums Chart is a music chart based on sales of albums of Contemporary Christian and gospel music in the UK. It is compiled weekly by the Official Charts Company (OCC), with each week's number one being announced on Mondays on their official website.[1] The chart was launched on 11 March 2013 in partnership with Christian child development charity Compassion UK[2] – the album at number one on the first chart was Zion by Hillsong United.[3] The band's record label, Hillsong Music UK, remarked that they were "thrilled to be part of the launch of the first Official Christian & Gospel Albums Chart in the UK".[3] The event launching the chart was hosted by David Grant, and featured Martin Smith of Delirious? and the London Community Gospel Choir.[4] The previous year, 600 new Christian music albums had been released in the UK.[5]
