In this short video Katharine – the friends1st founder (and still hands-on Director), shares the friends1st STORY; outlines friends1st CORE PRINCIPLES, and provides and OVERVIEW OF MEMBERSHIP, so that you can assess whether friends1st is the right organisation for you! We’re completely different to most Christian dating sites UK and you’ll find out why in this video.
Why we do CHRISTIAN DATING differently to online sites
We only accept genuine Christians as members so if that’s what you’re looking for you’ll be in the right company with us.
Our membership and introduction ‘Christian Dating’ service is provided entirely 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.
Both yours, other members and ours. 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.
“It ain’t what you do, it’s the way that you do it, and that’s what gets results.” We don’t solely introduce Christians to each other – we provide tools, education, coaching and support to make sure you’re doing the right things in the right way. That’s what gets results! Check out our RESOURCES tab – many of them are FREE and available for everyone.
A few of our successful couples who've shared their stories with us
I’m Katharine, the founder of friends1st – the UK’s largest off line Christian Dating agency. I’ve recorded a short film for you so click to the left or above to listen….
I started friends1st 18 years ago because I knew so many single Christian men and single Christian women and knew that many of them were finding it difficult to meet other single Christian women and single Christian men. 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.
