In August CCN Director Josie Gamble attended Wide Open, a two day Christian creative retreat based in The Camp Hill Estate, Bedale, North Yorkshire which hosts around 30 Christian creatives for a weekend of worship, connection and creativity.
It’s a unique collective experience for Christian creatives, visionaries and makers to gather together, and be encouraged and equipped to live out their creativity in a way that glorifies God and builds The Kingdom.
Sometimes as a creative, especially if your creativity is part of your employed work, you can lose your sense of fun and play. This weekend provided a perfect balance of creative play and connecting with likeminded individuals.
You even got to make an Oak chopping board to take home.
