Why we are different

Genuine Members

We only accept Christians as members and we verify everyone who joins us so if you are fed up of the pretence online – our membership will be breath of fresh air.

Off line

Our membership and introduction service is provided off line. You can call it old fashioned or you can sigh with relief that you’ve found a truly personal, interactive and effective way of meeting other single Christians.



We attract committed members due to our vetting and onboarding process. We don’t do trial memberships so you won’t find ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ members on our books. Just real genuine Christians who are truly committed to finding new friends and the right partner
