ArtServe is a community of people who enjoy creative and expressive arts of all types, and in particular the way in which they can be used to enrich worship and help the church communicate with those who might not otherwise find the time, opportunity or reason to share their experiences with us.

Joining ArtServe is simple. The minimum annual subscription is £25. Join online now or read more about becoming a member.

Members also receive our magazine and have access to the members area of this website. We welcome members' articles, reviews, artwork, news of forthcoming events, photos of past events, and anything that you think may be of interest to the ArtServe community.

Christmas card inside

She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.
(Matthew 1:21)

Sign up for our newsletter

We use MailChimp to send our bi-monthly email newsletter. We are in the process of revising our sign up procedure. If you aren't on our mailing list you will shortly be able to sign up here. If you become a member of ArtServe you will be added to our mailing list automatically and there is no need to sign up separately.

Submitting items for inclusion

We invite news of forthcoming events (UK only) and other opportunities that celebrate or encourage Christian creativity. Contributions should be emailed to the editor. We cannot guarantee publication and reserve the right to edit material. Please send proper copy – we can't undertake to publish anything based on an event flyer alone.

If appropriate, please include a website link for further details. If you supply an email address for enquiries we will assume that we have your permission to publish it. We welcome a suitable image to accompany your copy: if you send us an image we will assume it can be published without infringing any copyright.

Usual publication dates are the middle of January, March, May, July, September, and November.
