At Kerith Community Church we are privileged to have a community of talented individuals. Kerith Creatives are people who are reinvigorated when they can express their faith in Christ though creating. People who are drawn to express the message of the Gospel to others through art, music, writing, design, movement, media, images, speaking, production and more. If creating something with the purpose of drawing people into God's presence fills you with satisfaction, reenergises you - then join us!
Ephesians 2:10 tells us "For we are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God has prepared in advance for us to do."
Our core themes as Creatives are:
There are loads of opportunities to be involved in teams but a good first step is to join us for our Creative HUB nights. We meet at the Bracknell site in the Kerith lounge on the first Monday of every month from 7:30pm. We start with a coffee and catch up before splitting down into teams for the evening. If you’d like to get involved with Worship or Sunday Tech then the best time to come along to Kerith is a Thursday night from 8pm to take a look at a rehearsal in action. Please contact us via this page if you'd like to know more or get involved.
Three times a year, the Creative team host an event called "Bucket Meetings" where anyone can come along and throw any ideas about Kerith into the "Creative Bucket".
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 them in using the Get in Touch form on this page. We're really excited about gathering a wider pool of ideas and are looking forward to innovating together as a community.
At Kerith we place a high value on quality well produced meetings and therefore we are passionate about training up volunteers and gathering expertise to run technical teams in sound, lighting, switching/PC, cameras, visual media, production management and more. To inquire about any of these teams and training opportunities contact us via this page.
Love God, love people. This is the heartbeat of our church and the reason we worship. We desire each worship experience to show that life is truly found in God. Our shared worship at Kerith is an experience of celebration and joy, an opportunity to give all we can to show our love for God. We want people to find a place where they feel comfortable to come as they are, with all the pain and hurt and loneliness they may be experiencing, and can meet a Saviour who loves them and desires for them to find acceptance, forgiveness and grace in His presence.
Our musical style is contemporary and most of the songs we use in our meetings are very current. We believe that God continues to do new things in us as individuals and as a community, and we love to express that in our worship by keeping things fresh and new.
We are privileged at Kerith to have a growing team of volunteer designers who are passionate about producing excellence in all our visual and printed media. To get involved in anything to do with printed media contact us via this page.
At Kerith performance is right at the heart of our passion to make the content of all our meetings powerful and engaging. From full blown theatre productions, 'Word on the Street' or 'The Vigil', to monologues on a Sunday, the expressive and interpretive use of theatre arts can illustrate a preach message while glorifying God. The team is looking to build a strong core this year, with members of all ages, so please join us at our HUB nights or contact us via this page to get involved!
'No Perfect People Allowed' is how we see photography at Kerith. Real people, real places, real lives documented. Our team meet monthly to share jobs, discuss techniques and we're planning training sessions for buddying photographers. Contact us via this page to find out more.
We have an amazing bunch of carpenters, designers, painters who gather together at the HUB to brain storm, design and create brilliant sets to complement the Sermon series and events at our 2 sites. No experience needed just a passion for big projects! Contact the team via this page to get involved.
Our heart is to create film that communicates a church seeking excellence in our media and a passion to present the message the Gospel. To get a feel of our style at Kerith take a look at our Kerith Production YouTube page. We are looking to train up new editors, sound engineers, cameramen and women this year - so if you are looking at getting involved in any of these areas come along to our HUB nights and meet the team or contact us via this page.
Life in Kerith (LinK) magazine has become the flagship publication for Kerith. Made up of volunteer writers, proofers, photographers and designers, we run this magazine 'by the people, for the people', with our aim being to share the good news of Jesus Christ.
Take a look at a copy online to get an idea of what a LinK magazine looks like. If you would like to be involved or have an idea for a future article, then the team would love to hear from you. Please get in touch via the form on this page.
