Overview

Launches in 2000 in the United Kingdom, Christian Connection soon became incredibly popular thanks to positive media coverage in print and on the TV. By 2012, the dating site had expanded to other English-speaking countries such as the US, Canada, and Australia, amongst others. The site has also won numerous independent awards, beating more well-known competitors such as Match.com, including best overall niche dating services and plenty for its outstanding customer service too.

The site was born to help people of the Christian faith who struggle to find and date other Christians, for example, people who are part of a small church where it is difficult to meet new singles. Christian Connection gave those people the opportunity to meet fellow Christians near and far, from all denominations. The detailed profiles help in giving each user a better view of their potential dates, even before meeting in real life.

Easy to Use

The website is functional and has a neat design. The photos of your matches take up most of the homepage when you open the site. There is a tab that highlights how many members are currently active, but only premium members are allowed to view profiles.

Special Featuress

Christian Connection offers its members additional features to improve communication between users and elevate their experience.

Boards: These are forum-type discussions where users can interact and encourage each other on a series of different topics. They have different sections that cover a variety of issues. The topics are constantly updated and monitored, with the most recent or popular ones being the likelier ones you will see. Users can post topics, and other users can up vote them, and the same applies to comments.

Meetups: These are social gatherings that are organized by Christian Connection members. Users post an event with a time, date location, and a brief description. Members can mark themselves as “Going.” The location generates a map for users to view, and there are tabs for “Upcoming” and “Past Events.” Users can comment on past events to leave a review or thank the host.

Search Functions

Searching for members on Christian Connection is simple. All you need to do is go to the “Search” tab on the top toolbar. This gives you the option to search for members based on gender, what they are looking for (friendship or relationship), by age, location, and filter only members with photos. Advanced or additional options for searching include the denomination, smoking or not, matches with children or none, ethnic background, and height.

The results of your search are listed in rows and include a photo thumbnail, first name, age and location. You can then filter your results by newest members, recently online and closest to your location.

Safety & Security

Christian Connection has a dedicated team to help ensure the safety of all its members and to allow only genuine profiles. However, you can expect some scams or fakes to filter through. You can report any profile you deem suspicious and can also stop certain members from appearing in your searches. You can also email customer service for any queries or advice.

Summary

Christian Connection is a dating site that stands above its competition, not only in the particular Christian faith niche but overall too.
