About friends1st

I’m Katharine, the founder of friends1st….

I started friends1st 16 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, 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.
