Become a Single Friendly Church

Why should we become a Single Friendly Church?

Singleness is increasing in the UK

40% of UK adults are single, and this number is rising.

Single includes all ages and circumstances

Half of all single people are aged over 37.5 years.

There are many different types of single people who have different needs.

Many churches are family-focussed

Single people report feeling unwelcome, overlooked or misunderstood in family-focussed churches. We believe that church should be for everyone, regardless of marital status.
