Now established as one of the leading FREE festivals in the UK Creation Fest is organised by the Calvary Chapel stream of churches. This three day event, in a beautiful North Devon seaside location, is pioneering a new kind of Christian event, one which truly engages the non-Christian community with top quality contemporary Christian music and bold proclamation of the Gospel while at the same time being a showcase for some of the USA's and the UK's finest Christian artists. The next issue of Cross Rhythms will contain a feature on this pioneering event plus the history of Calvary Chapel and its enormous contribution to the development of contemporary Christian music.
