Christian Connection was launched in 2000 by Jackie Elton at the Greenbelt festival — an annual festival of arts, faith and justice held in England. Later the same year, it opened for registrations and received widespread media attention. The online dating service is run by a team of Christians from the UK. Since launching, thousands of users have found love, marriage, friendship, and community through Christian Connection.
Operating on a vision of quality, Christian Connection has won several awards including Highly Commended at the UK Blog Awards 2017. At the 2016 UK Dating Awards, it won Daters' Favourite Dating Site and Best Niche Dating Site, beating mainstream competition like Match.com, eHarmony, and Zoosk.
