Cheerfully Given is a marketplace website made up of a community of over 60 Christian designers and makers who have a desire to share the Lord Jesus through great design and contemporary craft. Take a moment to watch our video to find out more.
We want to worship the Divine Craftsman with excellence in all kinds of creative ways. Creative arts have been at the core of Church life since the tabernacle was constructed, so we want to encourage and share that great treasure.
We launched in June 2016 with our current basic beta website, and have since had over 170 applications from amazing creative businesses all over the world.
By Christmas 2016, we had outgrown our beta website, but it was going to cost in the region of £30,000 to build our forever home. So in February 2017, we took a leap of faith and launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for our new website.
426 incredibly generous people backed our project, which was fully funded by the time it closed in mid-March. Since then, Josh, Cat, and Menekse have been working tirelessly to create a new website that showcases Christian designers and makers from all over the UK on an easy-to-use, beautiful-to-look-at platform.
Our website isn't just a place to buy more stuff on the internet. It's a community of people who are passionate about reflecting the life of the Triune God. We want to encourage thoughtful, fair gift-buying and a new way of sharing Jesus in our homes.
