ATELIER – School of Worship, Creativity and Mission
July 13 - July 20€360
“Atelier is defined as a workshop or studio, especially one used by an artist or designer.”
Replacing our regular “Boot Camp” experience, ATELIER is A 7 day immersive school of worship, creativity & mission with an optional 6 day additional outreach experience in the Loire Valley, serving a christian kids camp on a 5* camp site
Founded by Jon and Anna White, Atelier is a new collective of worshippers & artisans pursuing the presence of God through the arts connected globally through shared heart and friendship. We are passionate worshippers who want to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord. We believe that art created through surrender to Jesus has the power to release the kingdom of heaven on earth. We want to see the Church become the ultimate workshop or studio as it embraces and releases artists to make all things new.
This year, we will be launching a 7 day immersive school of worship, creativity and mission, building on what has gone before in previous years through Bless’ Boot Camp at Bethanie. Whether you call yourself an artist or not – we are all creative, being made in the image of a creator God. This will be 7 days to go deeper in experiencing God’s heart for you, and His heart for the world. We will be delving into what it means to be rooted and established in our identity as sons and daughters of God, and for our worship, creativity and mission to flow out from that place. Come to France and get caught up in how much your Father loves you, how much he intends for you, and how incredibly fruitful your life is when you embrace the depths of His love for all he has made.
Our mornings and evenings will be spent in the prayer room pursuing the presence and encountering His transformative love. We have Ryan and Karen Hall from Franklin Prayer House in Tennessee leading us in worship, and teaching from Jon & Anna White and Gerard & Chrissie Kelly. Our afternoons will be split between serving Bless’ ministry, SOS Chai, to a refugee community in the City of Caen, and exploring our creativity through various tracts such as songwriting, painting, poetry, etc.
Bethanie is Bless’ Normandy base; an old converted cider farm set in 5 acres of countryside. Equipped with a large guest house, a presence soaked prayer room, and the “apple barn” – our communal eating space – Bethanie is a place where the heart of worship and the heart of mission collide, changing your heart forever.
