What is MAGNIFY?


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


MAGNIFY aims to create and share unconventional, refreshing and thought-provoking content through our print magazine, blog and events.


When did MAGNIFY start?


Our first regional event was held in Durham in February 2009.

Our first main event was held in London in September 2009.

Issue 1 of the bi-annual print magazine was launched at the end of 2014.


Why was MAGNIFY started?


Many see Christianity as dull, irrelevant and judgemental, but we believe in a gracious God and that a relationship with Him can positively impact every area of our lives.


Our Founder & Editor, Ruth Yimika Awogbade lost 3 relatives in quick succession just before starting university. However, it was in her second term of first year, where she discovered and started a personal relationship with God for herself. With the realisation that faith was real, personal and relevant, not only in the midst of tragedy but in contemporary culture, Ruth wanted to share this discovery with others. And so, MAGNIFY was born.

Why are we called MAGNIFY?


As Ruth began MAGNIFY, she came across an inspiring Bible passage that helped shaped the vision. In it, Mary, the mother of Jesus, is praying to God. She says, ‘My soul magnifies the Lord and my spirit delights in God my Saviour’ (Luke 1:46). The origin of the word mag-ni-fy is ‘to speak or act for the glory or honour of someone or something.’

We believe when we ‘magnify’ God in our lives, this is where true freedom and peace is found. This concept represents the heart of MAGNIFY, hence the name.


Who is MAGNIFY for?


MAGNIFY exists primarily for women who want to investigate the Christian faith. It provides an opportunity to do so in an unpressurised and authentic way.


Is MAGNIFY run by a church?


No, but all our team members attend local churches. We are a non-denominational organisation but we have great relationships with a number of churches across the UK, US and Nigeria.
