"It's the highlight of the year for us ... people are getting filled up, inspired and refreshed"

Ben Cantelon - Worship Leader


Creation Fest exists in order to share the good news of the God who has created us and loves us, of His Son, Jesus Christ, who has redeemed us, and of the Spirit who guides us. Our desire is that Christians would know and love Jesus more as they stand on the authority of Scripture, and that churches would come together in greater unity.

Creation Fest began in the summer of 2002 in Woolacombe, North Devon, as a one-day event and developed into a three-day festival. In 2009, Creation Fest moved to The Royal Cornwall Events Centre (Royal Cornwall Showground) in Wadebridge and extended into a full seven-day festival.

Attendees now gather from the Southwest, throughout the UK, and from countries around the world for the Fest. Throughout the year Creation Fest partners with local churches and organisations for outreaches and events in the UK.

2014 marked a year of transition as Phil Pechonis, co-founder of Creation Fest, passed away. He left a tremendous legacy of loving Christ and the people of England. Pastor Brian Brodersen, co-founder of Creation Fest, assumed the role of Festival Director, along with a full UK-based team. We look back at the past faithfulness of God and look forward to the good things yet to come.

Creation Fest 2009


  • God. We believe that there is one living and true God, who exists in three persons as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. All equal in power and authority, the Godhead is the Creator, sustainer, and governor of all things.
    2 Corinthians 13:14, The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.
  • Bible. We believe that God has communicated to us through the Old and New Testaments, which are true and without error. Scripture is the foundation of our individual lives and the blueprint for His church.
    2 Timothy 3:16-17, All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
  • Creation. We believe that God created our world and gave it life. He is the Maker, who by simply speaking brought everything into existence and tasked humanity to care for it. Colossians 1:16, For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him.
  • Jesus. We believe that God became man so that we might be reconnected to Him. As a man, Jesus of Nazareth fulfilled this mission by His death and resurrection, and as God remains the object of our worship. Isaiah 9:6, For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
  • Salvation. We believe that God invites everyone to entrust their lives to Jesus Christ. This act of faith initiates God graciously giving us spiritual birth, a place in His family, purpose in this life, and residency with Him forever. John 1:12-13, But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
  • Church. We believe that God has formed a universal community from those who follow Him. We are connected to each other locally, where we gather to worship Him, be taught by Him, and be sent by Him. Ephesians 2:19-22, Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
  • Life. We believe that God has given us His Spirit to have the liberty, power, and wisdom to live every day for Him. The believer who yields to His presence will experience the supernatural in all areas of life. John 14:12-13, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.”
