About Christian Connection

Christian Connection is a multi-award-winning dating site, dedicated to matching single Christians in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, United States, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong, New Zealand, and South Africa.

It's free to join, and there is no cost for a basic profile membership. You can take a look at our membership types here.

Since we launched in 2000, many thousands have found relationships, friendship, marriage and community through Christian Connection. Read our success stories.

We built the service around a set of core values, and we seek to serve Christians from all backgrounds and traditions.

It all started with a little faith...

Christian Connection was the vision of Jackie Elton. She realised that there are very few opportunities outside local churches to meet other single Christians.

“I developed the vision of starting a Christian dating site of the highest quality, which people of all Christian traditions would feel comfortable and safe with and which would give them a real chance to find somebody special. I also wanted it to be a place of community, which single Christians could call their own, people who can feel rather marginalised in Church communities. Much about the site has changed and developed over time, but it is still this vision that drives us.” Jackie Elton, Founder

Who We Are

We are a small and dedicated team based in London, UK. Our leadership team includes:

Jackie Elton who founded Christian Connection in 2000. She oversees the vision and strategy. Jackie has a keen interest in supporting single Christians in the church and working for better standards in the dating industry.

Erica Turner is responsible for business operations and strategy, in particular, the development of new markets. She also is involved in both offline and online marketing campaigns.

We also have a fantastic team working in customer service, technical development and event management.

Our Values

We understand that by running a Christian dating site, we have a responsibility to uphold certain codes of conduct, and we are proud to be industry leaders in this area.

Trust & Safety

We realise that people choose to join Christian Connection because they want to meet other genuine single Christians in a safe and supportive environment.

We are committed to the highest level of safety and security on our platform and at our events, and we are proud to be a founding member of the Online Dating and Discovery Association.

Quality & Value

When we launched the site in 2000, one of our founding principles was to create a service that rivalled any of the mainstream sites, and over 24 years later, we're proud to have won several awards. However, the biggest accolade comes from the thousands of stories and testimonials sent in by members.

Open to all Christian Traditions

We recognise that we belong to a very broad church, and we welcome Christians from a range of faith traditions and church backgrounds. We don’t ask people to sign a statement of faith, but instead, we believe it is important to show respect to one another's beliefs and values. Our members generally come under the Trinitarian Christian definition - which is covered in more detail here.


Community is at the heart of what it means to be a Christian, and we see Christian Connection as a small corner of the Internet which Christians can call their own.

We have very active and lively community of members who organise local meetups, which give people a chance to meet face to face in a comfortable environment. Find out more about our events for single Christians.

Empowering Single Christians

Regardless of whether you are actively looking for a partner, it is our desire at Christian Connection to see all single Christians empowered, inspired and encouraged in their faith and day-to-day lives.

To this end, we are proud to support a partner organisation Single-Friendly Church, which is helping churches to become places where single people can thrive.

The campaign has already gained support from Archbishops and major Christian leaders, regularly appearing on mainstream media. You can find out more and join the campaign at www.singlefriendlychurch.com
