ITV Tonight: Looking for Love – A Review

For the last 13 years since we launched Christian Connection, I have hoped that one day a TV programme about Internet dating would come along which is genuinely well informed, probing and helpful. But I ended up watching ‘ITV Tonight: Looking for Love’ with a mixture of frustration and resignation. Apparently the twittersphere agreed with me.

Single Christians: Life, Love & the Church

Over 100 people travelled to Bedford to share their experiences and stories of being single in church and their dreams for the future. The stories varied from the positive, to the heartbreaking and the humorous. But there was an underlying sense of determination that single Christians can be empowered to affect a change in Church culture.

Christian Connection at Greenbelt 2013

Christian Connection has a special connection with Greenbelt. We launched ourselves on an unsuspecting world at Greenbelt in 2000 and some of our earliest couples met via CC shortly afterwards. It has also been a great way to reach and connect with CC members. For about 5 years we ran some huge speed dating events with upwards of 500 people. Many found friendships and marriage but it was also very hard work. Since Greenbelt called time on speed dating, we have organised a number of more casual events either on the official programme or more commonly just inviting members and their friends to get together.
