Shoeburyness and Thorpe Bay Baptist Church


Approximately half of all households in Southend are lived in by singles. Singles are the fastest growing demographic in the UK but church can feel like a place focussed on families.

Building on the ‘Single Friendly Church’ principles and modelled on the thriving Bedford Christian Singles group we are looking to see if Christian singles in the Southend Area would be interested in being part of an ecumenical social group.


  • A volunteer-led, informal, social group aimed at working-age Christian singles
  • Bringing Christian singles together for friendship and socialising (not replacing an individual’s home church role for emotional or spiritual support, nor a ‘dating agency’)
  • Run by a volunteer organising committee responsible for planning events and advertising them with an emphasis on communication via social media and/or email
  • Open to anyone who is single to join – the never married, separated, divorced, widowed, those with children and those without
  • No membership fee – each event self-funding
  • Aim would be to hold a mix of events, possibilities could include: cinema; quiz night; games night; walks; summer picnic in the park; meals; London trips; museum visits; ten-pin bowling; crazy golf; theatre or comedy club visit

Initial meet up over a cuppa and cake will be held on:
Saturday 24 February
1:15pm – 2:45pm
at Shoeburyness and Thorpe Bay Baptist Church
