Creative Christianity

Creative Christianity grew from collaboration between photographer Lathan Ball and Counties evangelist Clive Cornish in a Threesixteen project named Pray Wales. Pray Wales started in 2003 when Clive and Lathan walked 450 miles around the perimeter of Wales carrying a large wooden cross. The purpose of this unique journey was to challenge people to think again about the Gospel message – that Jesus loves them no matter who they are or what they have done.  

Since that first walk Clive and Lathan have walked, run and climbed many miles with the cross and new evangelistic journeys are under consideration. Inspired by how this walk touched so many people Threesixteen are developing new creative Christianity projects which it hopes will challenge and encourage both believers and non-believers.

From 2003–2018 Threesixteen supported, photographed and filmed Counties evangelist Clive Cornish during his unique walks, runs and climbs with the cross. In June 2019 a selection of images from these amazing adventures were exhibited at the iconic Norwegian Church Art Gallery in Cardiff Bay. The exhibition entitled Forty Days & Forty Nights was designed to take viewers on a challenging and uplifting journey. A UK tour is now under consideration and new exhibition venues are being sought.

They said it was impossible grew out of a project called Pray Wales which included a series of walks, runs and climbs with a large (12ft x 6ft) and heavy (50lb) wooden cross. A free e-book and a series of four multimedia Bible studies based upon these incredible journeys are now available to download. New creative Christianity walks are planned for 2020 and 2021.

In a difficult and challenging walk evangelist Clive Cornish and documentary photographer Lathan Ball walked over 800 miles from Jerusalem to Rome in the Footsteps of the Apostle Paul. Travelling through Israel, Malta, Sicily and Italy with a large wooden cross they retraced Paul’s last missionary journey taking the Gospel message to the “ends of the world.” If you want to know more about this creative Christianity project than follow Lathan’s expedition diary on the Threesixteen blog.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son so whoever believes shall not perish but have eternal life.
