What is Kingdom Creatives
(affectionately known as 'KiC')
We are a Fresh Expression of Church (but church not as you know it) and a community who share the Christian narrative and are passionate about creativity. We provide a mobile, organic space and prioritise nurture and encouragement for the artist/creative and anyone who enjoys creativity.
We are a Christ Church Clifton, Bristol, initiative and have amalgamated with the Bristol Arts Sphere (more of which can be found here on the 'Together 4 Bristol' website).
Vision and values
We believe creativity is in our DNA, a gift from the Creator. We want to explore, with you, what this means in terms of connecting, expressing and offering.
We seek to be TRANSPARENT and RESPECTFUL in our words and actions. We hope to provide ENCOURAGEMENT for the holistic self: to see the artist achieve their highest WORTH.
Innovation: we are CREATIVE and serve to bring QUALITY.
Behind our values lies a presumption that the physical reflects the spiritual
“And He has filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding and in knowledge and in all craftsmanship”
'Church' but not
What do we do?
We facilitate GATHERINGS for those with faith, those who do not profess faith, those unsure.
Gatherings have different genres - worship, dialogue, exploration and presentation.
If possible, we are available to listen, mentor and provide pastoral care
We are a NETWORK with three objectives -FELLOWSHIP - RESOURCING - OUTPUT
we have a committed core team, adopting principles of support, sharing and endeavouring to prefer one another. We see this as both the model and catalyst for transformation.
we don’t wish to duplicate others’ work; instead we aim to refer artists to the most appropriate organisation, individual or project for their needs, ideas and creativity
we want to find out what people want and how Kingdom Creatives works for them. Action will include convening, initiating and coming alongside projects
