Created Creative – How it benefits people

“Over the last few years our understanding has grown of the impact of various difficult or traumatic experiences and the extent to which many of us, if not all, have been affected. With the growing awareness of mental health issues, it is clear that if people are given the right kind of support at the right time, serious long-term health issues can be avoided. We see the effectiveness of creativity in helping to unlock our emotions and facilitate healing and restoration.

Experience in our own church in Buckingham and in working with other organisation’s in the UK, in the Middle East and in Eastern Europe has confirmed that ‘creativity’ has a significant place today in helping people who have been affected by the raw experiences of life. This has led to the conviction that the work done by Created Creative has a significant part to play in helping people both within churches and the wider community.”

What Others Say

Small group time, UK

“As someone who considers himself far from being a creative person, I have been encouraged to engage with the resources at my own level and to reflect on the output. As a result, I have heard from God in an affirming and practical way that offers healing and personal transformation.”

What Others Say

Church Outreach and training, Overseas

“People in Eastern Europe need a lot of healing after so many years under the Communist regime, and I believe one of the ways through which the Lord is bringing healing is through creativity, we invited Emma to come here and minister to us God’s love and healing. We had an outreach in a small town, to over 20 gypsy children and to mature people too using creativity.

We also had times of creativity in our church, including having the first breakfast ever for ladies in our congregation, with prayer and creativity. Many were touched by God and received emotional healing and we have some beautiful testimonies from that day.

It was an amazing time of healing and breakthrough for us as a community.”

What Others Say

Creativity day, Overseas

“I was able to express what I was unable to find words for and get out onto paper with paint what was trapped inside of me, as I did this I found I was beginning to release the pain and hurt inside and give it to Jesus and He was healing me.”

Creativity seminar, UK

“The session on being creative was totally out of my comfort zone, but was so powerful and God was able to speak to me through my weakness.”

What Others Say

Women’s morning, Overseas

“It was special to gather as women, to share and create together, to have time to be and hear from God. We now run monthly creativity mornings at our local church and seeing the Lord bringing women from all backgrounds together and through the sharing and exploring together precious relationships are forming.”

Who we are

Created Creative is based in Buckingham and run by Emma, who has been equipping and helping churches and mission organisation's in the UK and overseas since 2012.

Through her own journey of unexpressed emotion and illness as a child, God brought healing and freedom through creative expression allowing her to live a fuller life. She has an art teaching and training background that God has redeemed and she is passionate about sharing how He uses creativity as a vehicle to bring His love and healing to the broken and those in need.
