Since its launch in 2001, more than 15 million Christian singles have turned to Christian Mingle when looking for lasting love, fulfilling friendships or a fabulous date.We know that shared beliefs are the best foundation for a lasting and fulfilling relationship.They say true love is hard to find, but meeting the right person can be even more difficult when looking for a partner that shares your religious beliefs.Now, a unique Christian speed-dating event is taking place in Hull to help single people find their ideal match."Many Christians would rather remain single than marry someone who does not share their beliefs," she said."I became a Christian after I met my husband and I am very lucky."He is the love of my life, and I knew we would be together from the first time I saw him."But, for many Christians, dating can be very difficult because they do not want to start a relationship with someone who doesn't share their faith."Mrs Rooms, who is a member of Jubilee Church in King Edward Street, city centre, said she wants to bring together Christians from across the community for the event."Some church communities can be quite insular," she said."We have a brilliant congregation, but it can be difficult for those looking for a relationship to meet new people."It is like going to the same bar or club every week, you start seeing the same people all the time."I know so many gorgeous women who still haven't found the right person and this speed-dating event is a chance for them to spread their wings a bit."The evening will include a five-minute date with each person and includes a welcome drink with a pie supper.
There are also lots of listings online for music, festivals and arts events, not to mention dozens of talented Christian rock groups to get those feet tapping.Churchgoer Raeann Rooms will host the first Found event at One Stop Golf in National Avenue this Thursday.Although the 45-year-old is happily married to a non-Christian, Mrs Rooms said she feels it is important to give people of faith an opportunity to share their lives together.Both you and your partner will be seated for the duration of the evening.If the idea of a welcoming, relaxed environment where both men and women are comfortable and at ease appeals to you, you will not want to miss tonight's event.We know they may not exist today without Christian Mingle.
