Who we are

Our mission and history

We aim to help the church in the UK to become more single friendly. As part of our Single Friendly Church campaign, launched in 2016, we offer simple steps for church leaders to take to inspire and reach out to single people in their congregations, as well as providing advice to individuals on single living.
