Religious? Christian? Looking to meet someone special?

Then you have just landed in exactly the right place!

Let’s take the pain out of religous dating.

Dating, if you are in any way religious, is hard nowadays. Chances are on-line dating is not working for you. You have searched through 1000s of profiles on many dating sites – let alone those that look like they are a religious dating site – found those profiles of people that state they are religious or Christian – only to find they certainly are not religious or Christian in the way you meant it. They might have been baptised as a child but that is as close as they get to being Christian. You have wasted more time, got frustrated – let alone totally fed up, and are exasperated about ever finding someone who would truly share your faith and be as religious as you are.

Thankfully and finally you have found friends1st. We are a genuine Christian agency, run by Christians for Christians, with the sole aim of helping Christians (or religious people if you will) find other (religious) Christian people to share their lives with.

We are not massive like match.com because we only accept people who have a Christian faith – and have faith in a real way – i.e they can actually talk about what it means to them – and how they would describe it.

Are you single, divorced, separated or widowed? We cater for all types of people – with all sorts of backgrounds, from all walks of life and of all ages. The one thing they all start with is they are Christian (or religious).

Don’t let the majority of online religious dating sites fool you, like they have so many others. 99% of them are not religious, do not properly cater for religious people and will happily take your money without giving you what you are looking for. friends1st is not like the rest.

About friends1st

I’m Katharine, the founder of friends1st…. I’ve recorded a short film for you so click to the left to listen….

I started friends1st 20 years ago because I had many so single Christian friends and knew many singles at my church who were finding it difficult to meet other single Christians. I knew it wasn’t just a question of connecting people (although this is key) but of providing a trusted, personal, hands on service where Christians could get the right support and assistance that would make a difference to their lives.

Since those early days friends1st has gone from strength to strength, remaining as an off – line, very personal, supportive, service with thousands of Christians meeting each other across the country – making new friends and finding a loving relationship. Our core values of providing a good old fashioned introduction service that isn’t faceless and powered by the internet continues to stand us and our members in good stead.

What we do

We simply and effectively connect you with other single Christians across the UK and Ireland in a personal way that encourages and helps you to make new friends.

We operate entirely OFF LINE with real staff dedicated to each members individual circumstances and success. As a member you will benefit from our caring, hands-on approach and enjoy our whole-hearted commitment to helping you find your soul mate.  Click the play button to the left to watch the story.
