What is Cheerfully Given?
Cheerfully Given exists to help every Christian share the beauty of Jesus in their homes, churches, and communities.
We support Christian artists, designers and makers as they pursue their creative calling, and equip the wider Church to share Jesus through creativity.
Our Christian marketplace is a community of sellers made up of artists, designers, and makers who love Jesus wholeheartedly and want to provide a platform for customers to buy quality design-led products that celebrate the life found in Jesus.
There are over 240 Sellers who make up our community, each with their own shop and product range, selling Christian homeware, stationery, and gifts.
Our creative events include our annual Creative Christianity Summit, and creative days exploring what it means to follow and share Jesus with creativity.
We serve people who love Jesus, or want to know more about Him, and Christian creatives and business owners - if you want to find out more about the ways in which we can help and support you, click here.
Why does Cheerfully Given care about creativity? What's the big deal with visual arts?
Creativity and the creative arts have been at the core of Church life since the tabernacle was constructed - and we want to share and encourage people in that great treasure.
We want to worship the Divine Craftsman with excellence in all kinds of creative ways, sharing Jesus through our homes, churches and communities, and keeping Him at the centre of all we do.
Does Cheerfully Given attend Christian events and conferences?
Previously, we’ve had teams at big Christian events like A Big Church Day Out, David’s Tent, and New Wine, and our founder, Menekse, has also been invited to speak at conferences and day events.
We also host the Creative Christianity Summit, with new speakers and sessions each year, and which began as a pre-pandemic in-person conference, and we run other workshops throughout the year.
We love working with churches, communities, and event organisers, so if you'd like to talk to us about your upcoming event, or running a collaborative project, then please contact us via this page.
