BUILD, Kingdom Code’s annual hackathon is back for 2018.
In October, join Christian technologists from across the UK and beyond to kick start projects and share ideas that integrate your Christian faith and your technical skill set.
Whether you’re a developer, designer, project manager, branding/marketing expert, ideator or something else entirely different, you’ll enjoy taking a weekend to meet and work with others who share your desire to see God glorified through technology.
Here’s what people said about last year’s event…
At BUILD I was able to encourage and support a community who really are dedicated to Jesus and technology. It’s a really good hackathon and organisation – Corina
One of the best bits of BUILD was working with like minded people to achieve so much in a short period of time and forming new friendships – Richard
I was able to build something together that serves a higher purpose while meeting new people in the tech world – Elizabeth
[I loved the] community and endeavour to deliver something to serve Jesus – Peter
It was exciting seeing many people really stepping up and moving in the area of tech and ministry – Courtney
The hackathon team were always available to ask and kept checking if people were ok 🙂 – Liz
At this event I realised I didn’t have to be perfect to join a team and develop or have a high knowledge to start a project… I could come with the skills that I’ve got and get involved with a team – Nicholas
BUILD 2018 is being hosted by St. John’s in Hoxton.
St. John’s sits minutes away from Silicon Roundabout, London’s tech hub. They have long been a supporter of Kingdom Code and we’re really excited to be able to host the hackathon with them.

New for 2018
We’re experimenting with a new schedule this year, running from 7pm Friday until 9pm Saturday. We hope that this will provide many benefits whilst still allowing sufficient time to form strong teams and achieve something significant.
If travelling home on the Saturday night may prove difficult please let us know and we will try and pair you up with participants in London who might be able to put you up on the Saturday night.
We will of course feed you over the course of the event, starting with dinner on Friday evening. Please let us know if you have any dietary requirements or food allergies when you buy your ticket and we’ll sort the rest! (and yes, there will be plenty of snacks and caffeine on tap…)

Details about the 2018 challenges are coming soon, however to whet your appetite, checkout last year’s challenges below.
In 2017 Christians Against Poverty asked us “how can digital tools enable churches to serve the poor and save the lost in their local communities?” Home for Good asked “how could Home for Good better use digital tools to inspire people, support them in their fostering and adoption journey and enable them to be part of a growing movement?”
What is Kingdom Code?
When the love of Jesus and a passion for tech collide, exciting things happen. Things that may just impact the Kingdom, things like Kingdom Code!
We’re a community of people who love Jesus and love tech. We’re creatives, developers, designers, entrepreneurs, ideators and innovators. We gather often to encourage, inspire and spark serendipity. So, whether you crunch data, grapple with code, place every pixel or love casting vision, there’s a place for you to come, learn, grow, make friends, network and have fun.
We typically meet on the first Monday of the month somewhere in London. Sign up, to get connected find out more about each event.
Meet a community with a shared passion for technology and a curiosity to see how it plays out in our faith.
Be inspired and inspire others with how you’re using technology, the vision you carry and projects we can build together.
Learn from others, stretch your faith and see what God will use you for as you engage and connect in His community.
