Who are we?

From graphics, websites and all things church outreach and promotion of the gospel to creative Christian clothing with statements of faith suitable for all the family, not from ape aims to inspire every Christian to spread the gospel of salvation to the people around them.


We are a family business based from in Derbyshire; UK. not from ape is the trading name for products and services provided by Laura Harker. Laura and her husband Richard are Christians with a passion for reaching the lost and growing God’s kingdom.


The designs and products we provide are quality, affordable digital artwork that can be used by Christians and Churches to spread the gospel of Christ whether they be for outreach media or for clothing. The purpose of not from ape is to provide creative design for inspiring Christian living, all designs that are created for Christian products are based on biblical teachings or principles.

All the works produced are self designed and are owned solely by not from ape. Design services can be provided remotely, through email, telephone and/or Skype conversing with the customer, or if preferred meetings in person can be arranged to discuss design requirements.


For our creative Christian clothing, we use base products that are manufactured to a good quality standard, we scrutinise our products to make sure that will stand the test of time and durability before we approve it for use by our customers. If we don’t feel a brand or particular style of garment meets our quality approval, we will not sell it to our customers.


The creative Christian clothing range uses brands such as Gildan who’s T-Shirts are certified under the Fair Labor Association and the World Responsible Apparel Production. We approve all of our T-Shirts and other base products before listing them for sale on our sites.

As for me and my house we will serve the Lord.

Joshua 24:15b


The Birth of the Ministry:


The vision for not from ape began a few years ago whilst Laura was pregnant with her first child, God spoke to Laura and said that she would one day work for His kingdom and was given several words to ‘be patient as the time was not now.’


We believe it took time for us to build our faith, our knowledge and our desire to reach the lost as well as physical changes like having their second child and moving house to accommodate the extra space that the business would require.


The years passed and God maintained His affirmation to Laura that she would one day work for Him until one day, circumstances changed in the favour of the business / ministry and God spoke ‘now is the time!’  God also confirmed the vision with Richard, Laura’s husband through dreams and visions as well as his own passion to witness to the unbelievers of this world.


So here we are, not from ape is the registered trading name for products and services provided by Laura with the full help and support of her family.


Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance

about what we do not see... By faith we understand that

The universe was formed at God’s command, so that what

was seen was not made out of what is visible.

Hebrew 11:1


For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to

do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.

Ephesians 2:10


Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm.

Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to

the work of the Lord, because you know that your labour

in the Lord is not in vain.

 1 Corinthians 15:58


But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in your weakness.”

2 Corinthians 12:9a


So we stand firm on His word, His promises to us and go where He leads us. Our work is for His glory, to reach the lost and share the good news of the Gospel of Christ which is our Salvation.
