The Christians’ first five singles all made the Top 40 in Britain, and their debut album The Christians (1987) entered the UK Albums Chart at number 2. It eventually sold over a million copies. The highest-placed single from this album was “Ideal World”, which reached number 14 in the UK Singles Chart.

In 1988, they released a cover of the Isley Brothers‘ “Harvest for the World“, with all proceeds going to charity. The video for the track was an animation, created by four leading animation companies, including Aardman Animations. The video won several awards, and the single reached number 8 in the UK singles chart, their sixth consecutive British Top 40 hit.

1989 saw another charity single success, this time as performers on a version of “Ferry Cross the Mersey“, released in aid of those affected by the Hillsborough disaster. The single stayed at number one for several weeks (No. 5 in Germany).

Their second album, Colour, released in 1990, reached number one in the UK Albums Chart and yielded the international hit “Words”, which was No. 18 in the UK (including the Hillsborough charity single their eighth consecutive UK Top 40 hit) and Sweden, No. 5 in the Netherlands (for two weeks), and No. 1 in France (also for two weeks). The second single from the album, “I Found Out”, reached No. 22 in France (No. 56 in the UK). In 1992, the following LP, Happy in Hell, charted at number 18. Its single, “What’s in a Word”, entered the UK Top 40 (their 9th single release to do so), and was a Top 20 hit in France (with a total chart run of 19 weeks); it also entered the German Top 75, reaching No. 60.

The early 1990s saw the band continuing to tour. A greatest hits album, The Best of the Christians, was released in 1993, and peaked at number 22.
