creative outreach

as love for God's world has become an increasing focus in our worship, so our creatives have found this love leading them to take worship out into the world

All our collective's creative ideas come out of our prayer times - some become resources to help the church capture more of God's heart for the world; some become a kind of accidental evangelism, that beckons the world into worship by revealing more of God's heart for all people.

into a practical input resource you can use in your context.
