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.

Projects

Each year individuals come together around projects to form a teams. These might be a missionally minded passion project, a R&D project from a ministry, or an investigation into the potential of a new tech or tool…

In 2016 we explored the evangelistic potential from Alexa, and in 2017 how Christians Against Poverty might use VR… We've optimised AWS setups for ministries, designed supporter websites, analysed data…

This year we're excited to be working with projects and ministries like Compassion, CARE, and Discipleship Tech.
