AboutUs

What is MAGNIFY?

MAGNIFY creates discussions around faith, feminism and fashion through our print magazine, blog and events.

MAGNIFY is a platform that gives women the opportunity to explore the Christian faith and how it can impact being a woman in today’s world.

MAGNIFY offers a refreshing perspective.

MAGNIFY says every woman has a unique identity and purpose.

MAGNIFY is a catalyst for community; a showcase for cutting-edge style; a gathering of intriguing interviews.

The MAGNIFY story so far

‘Faith is taking the first step even when you don’t see the full staircase.’ Martin Luther King Jr

This quote is an apt description of what the MAGNIFY journey has been like over the last few years. I started MAGNIFY in February 2008, during my first year at Durham University. Aged 19, the vision was born out of a personal experience, when through a series of life challenges, my faith was really shaken. In hindsight, I’ve come to believe that everything happens for a reason because, as trying as that time was, it gave me the opportunity to wrestle with my faith, explore my doubts and ultimately find out what faith meant for me. This led to me starting a personal relationship with Jesus that changed my life.

The vision of MAGNIFY has always been to give women the chance to explore the Christian faith in an unpressurised, engaging and creative way. As a team, we’re passionate about creating a platform that gives women the chance to bring to the table our strengths, weaknesses, fears and vulnerabilities – without any judgement or shame.

‘Faith, Feminism and Fashion – The Christian Women’s Magazine breaking every stereotype.’ This is how the Huffington Post described us just a few weeks after the launch of our inaugural issue and it was a humbling description to say the least.

We aim to speak to the real issues women face and we hope that, through our beautiful aesthetics, MAGNIFY remains relevant for generations to come.

We hope you enjoy browsing the site and continue to  follow the MAGNIFY journey through following us online and we would love to meet you at a MAGNIFY event soon.

With Love,
