Local groups for single Christians

Here we list the local groups that (as far as we know) would welcome new members. As an organisation we offer this list as a service to you, but by listing them we have not checked them in any way and you should make your own enquiries as to their suitability for the unique person that is you. 

If you know of any others or of changes to these, please don't hesitate to let us know at info@singlefriendlychurch.com 

There may not be one in your area - so consider setting up a simple after church gathering or social meetup. Or even start your own!
