If you are a pastor, teacher or in ministry, we hope to provide a website that will serve you in one of the following ways:
Providing a searchable database
We know searching the internet can be a time consuming exercise! We hope to pool together great creative resources and video media suitable to the Australian context and make it accessible in one easily searchable site. So for example, if you are planning to teach or preach on a particular passage, say Mark 5, our long term goal is that you could search this passage and have videos, photos, activities, artworks, scripts and other resources appear.
Helping you to encourage creativity in your ministry
Have you wondered how you may incorporate creativity into your ministry? We are committed to assisting pastors to use creativity in their ministry. We are also committed to providing meaningful avenues for those people in your church or school who are creatively gifted, to use their gifts for God’s glory. You may want to interact with us in one of the following ways.
General assistance and support in creative engagement.
Just send us a line and we are more than happy to discuss with you ways that creativity could be fostered in your setting or in a particular service. We provide support for churches in this area free of charge. Some examples might include support in:
- Planning an exhibition
- Beginning a creative arts team
- Planning a creative arts/special service
- Integrating the creative arts into children’s and youth programmes.
We can also offer training to leaders at a negotiated cost.
Art in August
‘Art in August’ is an initiative encouraging people to use the creative arts in ministry, evangelism and faith exploration. During this time we provide resources, ideas and opportunities for creative arts engagement. Information about the 2020 Art in August will be available soon.
Host a workshop
We can bring creativity to you! Our workshops are unique in combining faith with creativity and can be tailored to outreach, ministry and training events. For example, we have workshops in puppetry, sculpture, animation, poetry, drawing, painting (watercolour, acrylic, acrylic pouring) floristry, mixed media, drama and dance.
Host an exhibition
Exhibitions are a great way to explore faith visually and provide opportunities for artists use their gifts to serve the church body. We can:
- Send an exhibition to you
- Curate exhibitions for your church or organisation
- Support you in creating an exhibition
- Provide opportunities for the artists in your ministry to join one of our exhibitions
- Assist your church to create art for an exhibition through workshops
Encourage the creative people in your church to become contributors.
We are passionate about supporting Christian artists and writers by giving them a platform by which their work may be used in ministry and gospel proclamation. Why not encourage those in your church with creative gifts to become contributors?
Bring the Gospels to life.
Consider performing chapters of the Gospels or perhaps even a whole Gospel using The Scripted Bible. The rehearsal process may provide a wonderful opportunity to engage in the Bible in a fresh way as well as developing a sense of community as you work on a shared project.
If you have written some great material, whether it be a Bible study or worksheet or other resource, consider selling or sharing it through our site.
