I get asked a lot about how you come up with ideas. So I have set up a series of four webinars for one hour each exploring that question.

Each one will take one idea for exercising creativity and play with it. There will be three guests each time – an artist/creative, a church leader and a pioneer.

While the ideas explored will be helpful to anyone wanting to think about how you exercise creativity, the challenges and exercises we do will explore church and the practice of the Christian faith today. This is inspired by a comment that struck me from a friend that the church’s greatest challenge today is a lack of imagination. Rather than bemoaning that fact this is an attempt to help get imaginative, get the creative juices flowing as it were.

Please do not think it’s only for people who think they are creative. The whole point is that it is for anyone interested and not just those who already think they are good at exercising creativity.

It’s free – simply register through eventbrite and I will send you a zoom link nearer the time.

How will it work?

Each week there will be a mix of stories and interviewing guests around exercising creativity and how they come up with ideas. There will be creative exercises for the guests to engage in live each time that explore the theme of the week.

You will be invited to contribute via chat if you would like but will not be put in small groups to do any work or anything so you can relax about that – you can sit back and enjoy it. I hope it will be fun, generate ideas and give you some tools and approaches to exercise creativity yourself.

If you like the ideas and want to explore further I have written six short pieces on exercising creativity at the end of each chapter of Imagining Mission with John Taylor, the book just out by me and Cathy Ross.

The four sessions are as follows:

  • But I’m not creative! Thurs 7 Jan 8pm

  • Provocations – Thurs 14 Jan 7pm

  • Play – Thurs 21 Jan 8pm

  • There are no rules – Thurs 28 Jan 8pm
