    Weʼve raised £285 to raise funds for God for Kids: an app that teaches kids who God is and what God is like

    Sheffield, UK
    Funded on Wednesday, 13th March 2019

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered nonprofit.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Please help us finish this high quality teaching app for kids around the world and their parents to discover more about God of the Bible.

    There are some wonderful Bible apps out there for kids that tell the narrative of the Bible in a beautiful and relevant way for children. God for Kids is an app that looks at some of the overall themes of God found in the Bible - it's about God the Father, Jesus His Son and the Holy Spirit, our ever-present guide.

    It teaches kids what God's character is really like, based on those who knew God best and wrote about God in the books of the Bible.

    Every day you can learn one new thing, based on one new Bible verse.

    In a world that misunderstand God's character and misapplies the Bible to create a God of their own image, this app is designed to set the plumb-line for a God who loves us and is Almighty. The God who sent His Son to perfectly reflect His image and sent us the gift of the ever-present Holy Spirit to empower us to love and follow Him.

    For parents who want to engage with their children on spiritual matters and struggle to hold their children's attention by traditional off-line methods, this app is a tool in the hand, a helper and a guide to empower them to share their faith in a gentle and respectful way with their kids. God for Kids is friend to remind them that they are not alone in their efforts to raise children of faith.

    God for Kids invites children to ask questions and chat with their grown-ups - sometimes in a lighthearted, relationship building way, and sometimes in a more meaningful way about faith in God.

    God for Kids is helpful, informative and above all - it's fun! We believe God is a wonderful, delightful being who enjoys us and loves it when we enjoy Him.

    We need to pay one final bill for this app, due 16th March.

    After that, we need regular supporters who will support the ongoing costs of keeping this app up to date, bug free, functioning on all tech platforms (because they update and change constantly) and known in the wide world.

    Will you join us?


    *God for Kids has always operated as a not-for-profit and has been supported by many donations in the past from friends and family who believe in teaching kids about God in ways most accessible to them. You can download the app and read more about it here:

      To boost fundraising, all profits from the sale of my book, Looking for Love, via in February will go towards this campaign. Last week I sold 10 books so that's £100 more! Will you share this with someone you know?

      I'm still here and I'm still fundraising! Who would ever choose to fundraise over Christmas? But that's the way it's worked out and I believe God isn't limited by Christmas. The new adventures are under the final stage of testing and will be released within the next few weeks. So far, all but one of the bills have been paid for by God's provision through generous donors like yourself. The final bill to the app developer company will be £4,200 due February 2019. My writing and time is given completely for free. Thank you and keep sharing!
