Kingdom Code BUILD

Kingdom Code BUILD is back for 2019! It is our annual hackathon bringing together Christians who work in the world of tech from across Europe.

Join Christian technologists, on Friday 11 – Saturday 12 October 2019, from across the UK and beyond to share ideas and kick start projects that integrate our Christian faith and technical skill sets.

Whether you’re a developer, designer, project manager, branding/marketing expert, ideator or something else entirely, enjoy taking a weekend to meet and work with others in the Kingdom Code community who share your desire to see God glorified through technology.


At Kingdom Code we want to explore how the technical skillsets that God has given us can practically serve His church. Each year at BUILD we set a pair of challenges to give focus to what we work on during the 24 hour hackathon.

How can we equip Christians to use the Bible more in evangelism?

"Go and make disciples of all nations...". These are the words of Jesus to his disciples (Matt 28v19). And Paul writes to Timothy "All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching..." (2 Tim 3v16). So how might we use technology to equip Christians to use Scripture in their personal evangelism?


How might we resource your local church to serve and include the poor?

James writes to the scattered church; pure and faultless religion is "to look after orphans and widows in their distress..." (James 1v27). The local church has a role to play in caring for the poor and vulnerable in its community- so how might we be part of resourcing that work of service?


It was impressive to seeing every one committed to moving fast from idea to an output with in a day. Grateful for the tech skill sets and talents within the Christian community


It all come together; five previous strangers managed to build something together using everyone's skills


At BUILD I was able to meet other Christian developers and discuss God centered technologies.


I met excellent skilled people, eager to code for Jesus


One of the best bits was encouraging and supporting a community who really are dedicated to Jesus and Tech… it is a really good hackathon!


I was able to work with a team of people who loved God, to build something which advanced His Kingdom… it was exhilarating.


I loved seeing how much can be achieved in such a short period of time!


At BUILD I realised you don't have to be perfect to develop or have a high knowledge to start an project


One of my highlights from BUILD was catching up with people and getting to do some pythony pairing for a great idea.


It was great to develop something for the Kingdom and to meet Christians in tech.
