Your 12-month Summit experience begins soon...

After an incredible event in 2020 with hundreds of attendees from all over the world, we're back for an all-new event for 2021!

Last year, many of us were in lockdown or on furlough from work. This year, the world is opening back up again, so we’ve changed things up to make the Summit even more flexible, accessible, and valuable than ever.

Along with sessions, talks, and Bible teaching from over 40 speakers, we’ve planned out a 12-month experience that will keep you feeling refreshed, inspired, and encouraged in the year ahead!

All of the sessions are premiered from June 15 - June 19, so you can watch them flexibly in a way that works for you - but that’s just the beginning.

Each month, we’ve got a creative theme including a short challenge, a Bible encouragement, a live interview with a creative professional, and a “Reflection & Questions” session to talk about the things you’ve been doing that month.

We’ll also give you monthly suggestions of which sessions to watch if you want to listen to the event over the course of the year instead of binging it like a Netflix series.

It’s completely flexible to fit around work, family, and life, regardless of your country, time zone, or circumstances.

Listen to graphic designers, writers, illustrators, actors, photographers, artists, church & ministry leaders, entrepreneurs, business owners, and many more discuss all things faith & creativity.

😍 Be inspired and encouraged
πŸ₯° Be equipped and empowered
🀩 Be energised and filled with vision

Join the Summit!

"Every session has been filled with such positivity, it's inspiring. Each one is different, but all have been uplifting, helpful, and encouraging. I can't pick a favourite because every guest has brought something truly valuable to the table."

- Gill, Attendee at our 2020 event

"I love how honest everyone has been in their journey. It's really helped me see how the Word comes alive in every realm of my life."

- Kaydi, Attendee at our 2020 event

"My favourite thing about the Summit has been the focus on Jesus. I've just loved being reminded in so many ways that it's really all about him."

- Abi, Attendee at our 2020 event

Why the Creative Christianity Summit? πŸ€”

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.

Premiering from June 15, 2021, this year's event brings you over 80 new sessions and a community experience you can enjoy at your leisure for 12 months.

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 40 inspiring creative Christian speakers to explore these things and more.

This sounds amazing, I'm in!

Here's what you get when you join this year's Summit...

πŸ’• Over 40 professional Christian creatives sharing wisdom & experience designed to encourage you and help you grow closer to Jesus

πŸ“– Christ-centred Bible teaching and sessions looking at creativity as a follower of Jesus

πŸ“Ή Talks & sessions exploring different aspects of faith and creative practice from a range of industries

🎨 A variety of creative workshops you can easily do from home to learn a new creative skill, delivered by professional creatives

πŸ₯° Virtual community spaces so you can connect & share your reflections with other attendees, ask questions, be encouraged and make new creative friends

πŸ“… A 12 month experience so you can watch and rewatch the sessions until June 2022 & enjoy creative challenges & encouragement through the year

Plus, this year we've added...

A 12-month experience to fit around life, family & work πŸ“…

Last year, many of us were in lockdown or on furlough from work. This year, the world is opening back up again, so we’ve changed things up to make the Summit even more flexible, accessible, and valuable than ever.

We've got monthly creative challenges, live Q&As, and monthly suggestions of which sessions to listen to if you want to listen to the event over the course of the year instead of binging it like a Netflix series.

The first 5 days are just the beginning, but the magic lasts all year long.

Private Event Podcast πŸ“±

This year, all of our sessions will also be available as private podcast episodes you can listen to on the go! 

When you join this year's event, you'll be sent an invitation to our private podcast stream so you can listen to episodes via your favourite podcast app until June 2022.

Graphic illustrations with Katie Chappell ✏️

Live illustrator Katie Chappell has worked with global clients including Google, Facebook, TEDx, V&A, the NHS, and more - and this year, she's providing us with visual notes for 15 of our sessions so you can process the talks visually.

Never heard of graphic illustration? Check out a sneak peek of Paul Blackham's Tabernacle notes!

What if I'm busy?

You might be thinking...

"I’m finally able to see my friends and family."

"I've got work, so I don't have time for this."

"I’m not on furlough like I was last year."

And we get it, don't worry!

Now that the world is opening back up again, it might feel like too much of a commitment to join the Summit.

That's why, this year, we've intentionally designed the Summit to be a 12-month experience.

So sure, you can binge-watch sessions like Netflix if you want.

But really, we want you to be able to enjoy the sessions at a pace that works for you and your life.

Each month we've got some simple creative challenges & Bible encouragements, a live interview, and a live Reflection & Question session as well as suggestions for 4-5 sessions you could listen to via video or private podcast stream. 

It's a 12-month experience designed to inspire, encourage, and equip you with creative confidence in Jesus through the seasons.

Then, we have monthly live sessions to connect and reflect on the sessions, and a community group that lasts a year so you can find friendship & refreshment as you watch and rewatch sessions throughout the year.
