Kingdom Code BUILD is our annual hackathon in partnership with Indigitous #Hack, bringing together Christians who work in the world of tech from across Europe.
Join Christian technologists 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.

I loved seeing how much can be achieved in such a short period of time!
I met excellent skilled people, eager to code for Jesus
It was great to develop something for the Kingdom and to meet Christians in tech.
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!
At BUILD I was able to meet other Christian developers and discuss God centered technologies.
I was able to work with a team of people who loved God, to build something which advanced His Kingdom… it was exhilarating.
At BUILD I realised you don't have to be perfect to develop or have a high knowledge to start an project
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
One of my highlights from BUILD was catching up with people and getting to do some pythony pairing for a great idea.
