CHAMPIONING CREATIVITY IN THE BODY OF CHRIST

What is the Christian Creative Network?

Christian Creative Network’s mission is to ‘Champion creativity in the body of Christ‘ and we are doing that through a national network of local branches, an online Christian creative directory (launching 2020) and we have a vision to host Christian creative recognition awards. 

Who is it for?

CCN is for Christian creatives 18yrs and older who are actively pursuing their creativity. It’s for freelancers, those in the creative industries, those who have taken a break and getting back into it and skilled amateurs who need support taking the next step. Creative expressions include…

  • Dance

  • Ceramics

  • Sculpture

  • Design

  • Music

  • Song Writing

  • Poetry

  • Spoken Word

  • Drama

  • Script Writing

  • Textiles

  • Fashion

  • Painting

  • Illustration

  • Photography

  • Film Making

  • Fashion

  • Animators

… we’ve problsly missed loads but you get the idea!

CCN span denominations as we embrace our God given creativity, journeying together in support as we champion creativity in the body of Christ.

Why?

We believe that the Church is in a Renaissance of creativity, which simply means a renewed interest. There was a time when the Church was leading the way in creativity with architecture, fine art, sculpture and music but that this changed during the Reformation and since then the Church has been playing catch up with the world. We believe that we are at a poignant moment in time where the gap between the Church and the world is more apparent than ever and that its the creative communication of the gospel that bridges this gap.

We believe God is restoring the value of creativity to the Church in these days and that’s why as the Christian Creative Network we want to connect, champion and encouraging creative individuals to reach their potential and influence their world for the Kingdom.

 

When creative individuals get together exciting things happen; collaborations take shape, passions are ignited, skills are shared, opportunities are created and dreams are activated. CCN creates an environment to meet and network with like-minded local creatives who face similar challenges and enable them to journey and grow together. We’ve seen people grow in confidence and come alive, creative businesses start, churches engaged and communities impacted.
We truly believe that creative communication is key to effectively sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and as creatives are empowered and encouraged in the body of Christ, they will help usher in revival.

What Members Say

I love the Christian Creative Network, being around other creatives has ignited something in me again. The past few years, I have spent my time developing others and neglecting my own creative skills. Since I joined the monthly creative meets in Wolverhampton, I have been inspired and encouraged to step out of my comfort zone. My passion for creativity is back!

“I joined the Christian Creative network in May 2017 and have felt really blessed being a part of the community. As a full time professional artist I can spend a lot of time isolated in my studio, so having monthly meetings where I can fellowship, encourage, support and share about my work with other creatives is really important, it’s not just an online community, but an offline one too with real people and real connections. I really appreciate being able to contribute to a group who are actively trying to help others. Seeing the way other creatives from all different disciplines and backgrounds come together and grow/progress in their careers and artistic practice is a delight to see and be a part of. I also appreciate the rich wealth of wisdom and experience every member brings to the group making it what it is, the right kind of environment for growing and nurturing creative talent”.

Jay Valentino, Fine Artist

“At the start of 2018 I found myself at a point of transition. I needed some direction from God as to what I did next and if I should actually try to be a professional artist and maker or get a more stable job! Coming to my first CCN networking meeting in January changed everything for me. The opportunity to exhibit in a show and also have intelligent creative conversation and faith was fantastic. I truly believe in this network being incredibly powerful in the lives of individuals and also the people who’s lives are enriched by the creative work that members do. I am thankful and excited about the future. God is certainly on the move through creative people and encouraging those who don’t feel they are”.
