New directory hopes to herald a 'Renaissance of Christian Creativity'

A UK-based directory connecting churches and businesses with Christian creative professionals and services has been launched and it’s hoped it will herald a new era of creativity in the Church.

Its founder, Josie Gamble, says she hopes to build on the creative legacy of Christianity over the centuries: 

“I believe there was a time when the church was leading the way with this – architecture, stained glass, fine art, sculpture – since the Reformation a lot of the value of these practices has disappeared and since then the church has been playing catch-up with the world in terms of creativity.”

Josie, who is an entrepreneur with over 25 years of experience in the creative industries and church leadership, says her mission is to champion creativity in the church: 

“We’re doing that by offering listings for Christian businesses and opportunities and tips and articles, so we’re connecting creatives with the people who need their services.“

It’s hoped Christians from all the creative industries, from writers to jewellery designers, will see this as an inspiring opportunity of connecting with churches and organisations, in what Josie describes as a “Renaissance of creativity in the UK Church.”

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
