We have hand selected some amazing Christian businesses from across the country and invited them to Activate just for you.

Be Weekend Away

About the Market Place:

Christian businesses and charities from across the country. Located outside the Main Meeting Room, you can check out these wonderful stands and support these small businesses.


Hi, my name is Debbie. I've been with you at Activate for many years and I'm looking forward to seeing you again. Come and chat to me, I'm happy to give recommendations and help in any way I can.

Just as our founders did, we desire to follow the example of Andrew, who introduced his brother, Simon Peter, to Jesus in the first chapter of John’s Gospel. And we believe that Christian bookshops have a special role to play in providing opportunities for people to meet Jesus.



Hi all, my name is Rachel Bell from Precious to me Designs - Handmade Designer Jewellery in silver and gold.

I'm based in Kettering, Northamptonshire.

I design and makes all the collections. I also offer a Commission service where I can design the perfect piece for you.


Third Space

Third Space Ministries seeks to be a positive presence in the third spaces of society through:

Team outreach: such as Love All Serve All at Wimbledon Tennis Championships; and Club Angels teams serving in nightclubs.

Teaching and training: enabling churches and Christian groups to think more creatively about engaging with their communities.

Chaplaincy: offering chaplaincy at sporting events, in local gyms, the music industry and other leisure environments.

Take time to chat to Carolyn Skinner.



Becky Bultitude – Your Little Gift Shop, and The Body Shop

I am very much looking forward to having my stall at Activate. You may remember my shop as Pebble Crafts and I sell slate hearts and coasters.  Since our last weekend away, my business has undergone a revamp and is now branded as Your Little Gift Shop.  I will have lots of Body Shop stock as well, which is a favourite for all ages.



Beth Wakeford Cards  - bethannefloral

My cards started when I arranged some of my English garden flowers to make a word for my daughters baby and loved doing it.

I draw the designs in pen and ink and paint in with watercolor. Over the past 6 years I have a small range to cover most occasions and to send love and encouragement.

Hi, I’m Libby, an independent artist from Birmingham and the face behind Created to Create. My art is inspired by God’s word, the beauty of nature, and my desire to bring encouragement to others.

In my shop, you will find my art on prints, cards, notebooks and mugs. There are also necklaces, keyrings and bookmarks which make lovely gifts. I look forward to seeing you at the marketplace!




Lesley Hollingworth Gifts

We're equipping churches to model a different type of relationship between men and women whilst providing a safe refuge for survivors, nurturing them back to health and demonstrating God’s deep love for them.
