Did you hear Sunday's site host talk about tonight's Bucket Meeting?
It's 8-9.30 pm at the Kerith Centre, and it sounds like it's going to be a fun place to pop along and contribute your creative ideas! So if you've started this year thinking you'd like to be a bit more creative, or that you'd like to have a go at something new or to meet new people, this could be something worth getting out of the house for!
My particular interest in tonight is that some of the ideas going into the bucket will be for REAL in June. The creativity at REAL is one of the great highlights of our conference, and something that we always get positive feedback about. So I am so looking forward to seeing and hearing the new ideas!
Here are some more details (pinched from Simons blog!)
Creative Arts Bucket Meeting
In 2014 our Creative Arts team have been tasked with getting better at sourcing great ideas. One of their key strategies for doing this is to create a place where they can gather ideas from the wider church on subjects such as sermon series, music, drama, events, stage design etc. Three times a year, Kerith Creatives are going to host an event called a “Bucket Meeting” where anyone (that means you!) can come along and throw any ideas you’ve ever had about Kerith into the “Creative Bucket”. To start with, we’ll be specifically looking at Sundays and Events, but as time goes on, we’ll look to expand to ideas for other areas of church life.
The first Bucket Meeting is on Monday 13th January 2014 at the Kerith Centre on the Bracknell site at 8pm-9.30pm. For those of you who’d like some thinking time before hand, below are the topics we’ll be capturing ideas for in the upcoming meeting:
- Christmas 2014
- Promises of God
- Mothers Day
- Ideas for Preaching Topics
- General Ideas
If you plan to come along, feel free to bring anything you’ve seen or collected that you think might be helpful, either in digital or print format (as long as it fits through the front doors!), or just bring yourself and brainstorm as we chat. If you have ideas but are unable to attend, please send your ideas into email@example.com before 13 January 2014. We’re really excited to gather a wider pool of ideas from you all and are looking forward to innovating together as a community.
