Over 35 sessions exploring faith and creativity that you can fit around lockdown life 🥳
We've got Bible teaching, interviews with thought leaders, sessions looking at creativity in the arts, and creative workshops designed to be done at home.
Listen to graphic designers, writers, illustrators, actors, photographers, artists, church & ministry leaders, entrepreneurs, business owners, and many more discuss all things faith & creativity.
Plus, try your hand at Bible journaling, origami, creative sermon notes, crochet, and hand lettering in the digital workshops.
In 2019, Cheerfully Given hosted the first Creative Christianity Conference in London 🇬🇧
With a small central London venue, we hosted over 200 delegates, who took part in 6 creative workshops and 7 teaching sessions exploring different elements of faith and creativity, as well as a marketplace of Christian artists and designers from around the UK. With the response we got from our audience, we realised we could have filled a bigger venue twice-over!
The feedback we got on the day was incredible, and led to expressions of interest from four Church of England dioceses as well as a smaller conference in Northern Ireland in October 2019.
We were all set to run the second conference on Saturday 20th June, 2020, but due to Covid-19 we had to develop an alternative solution 🤓
So the plans to take the conference digital got under way.
Our aim with the Creative Christianity Summit is to create a joyful and fun experience for people that highlights some of the amazing ways people can engage with who Jesus is through the creative arts.
We want to encourage people to look to Jesus, and have their hearts and minds opened to Him through inspirational stories and sessions based around faith and creativity.
We know that in Jesus we can get the biggest vision of truth and reality - what does that mean when it’s expressed in visual, musical, theatrical, and written forms? How can we encourage people to take this seriously?
Join us, along with over 28 incredible, inspiring creative Christians to explore these things and more.
Whether you're an aspiring creative, or you've got decades of experience under your belt, this summit is an opportunity to connect with other people who share your heart and get a fresh vision for what your gifts are all about.
The summit looks at who Jesus is through the creative arts. So whether or not you're currently a Christian, if that's something that sounds interesting to you? You are welcome with us!
Creative gifts have been fundamental to church life since the Tabernacle, but the modern church sometimes struggles to see how. As well as exploring the nature of faith and creativity, join us for sessions on branding, marketing, and social media that will help you grow.
If it's of interest to you? It's for you.
This is a joy-filled, exciting experience wherever you are on your journey of faith and creativity, and we would love to have you join us.
