ArtServe promotes and supports the use of creative arts in
Christian worship, including music, dance and drama, visual arts,
and creative writing.
ArtServe runs an annual festival weekend as well as one-day events
designed to bring people together at a more local level. It
publishes a members' magazine as well as an email newletter which
anyone can receive.
Having started as an initiative of the former Methodist Church
Music Society, ArtServe has very strong Methodist links, but is now
an independent ecumenical charity.

The Worship Cloud - sharing resources for the good of
The Worship Cloud is a website (formerly The Seed),
originally founded with support from the Methodist Church, which
allows people who produce PowerPoints, mini-movies, music, written
word and images to sell and share their work quickly and easily at
no cost to themselves.
For a small fee, others will be able to download material for
projection, magazines, posters etc, without having to worry about
any copyright restrictions. The originator will earn royalties, and
10% of profits will go to charity.
There is a vast wealth of resources sitting on people's computers
that could be of great value to the whole Church. The Seed aims to
build a vast and accessible online library, improving the quality
of resources for worship, event publicity, and otherwise spreading
the message of God.
So visit www.theworshipcloud.com and start
sharing your work.
