Kingdom Code - BUILD Design Sprint - London
@Willcox House (1st Floor) 140-144 Borough High Street London SE1 1LB
Kingdom Code is a community of Christians who work in the world of technology- whether you are a designer, developer, data analyst, game engineer, product manager, digital marketer, entrepreneur or something else entirely in tech this is a group for you.

It's a month before Kingdom Code BUILD, an annual hackathon, and we're beginning to think about what we're going to be making… We're inviting the mission agencies that we will be partnering with to join us to share more about what they do and their hackathon challenges with us. We're going to condense Google Venture's Design Sprintdown to an hour and a bit to work through some techniques to come up with ideas, to refine those ideas, and then get them ready to be pitched at the hackathon.

We'll be digging into these two challenge areas:
How can we equip Christians to use the Bible more in evangelism?
How might we resource your local church to serve and include the poor?

Churches that Change Communities 2019 - Bristol
@St Michael's Centre, North Rd, Stoke Gifford, Bristol BS34 8PD
Since our conference, poverty has increased in tandem with a national sense of uncertainty and even chaos. Our society, including those who lead our nation, are more aware than ever that the future is unknown. In many of our communities, life is getting harder for those on the margins. We are told that work is the main route out of poverty, yet in-work poverty is increasing faster than employment rates. The old things our country relied on seem to be crumbling all around us. It sounds bleak, but against this backdrop, churches are regaining a belief that care for the poorest isn’t an optional extra for Christians, but is vital to the gospel. Between us, we’re giving millions of hours and millions of pounds to alleviating poverty – both seen and unseen – in our towns and cities, to speaking up against injustice and to championing the cause of the vulnerable and oppressed. I’m delighted to invite you to our national conference, now in its ninth year. It will envision, equip and encourage you to increase your impact on those around you and prepare for future austerity that we believe may be around the corner. The day will include prophetic teaching, seminars, networking with one another and social action franchises, and worship with an opportunity for prayer. I very much hope you will join us!
