Six packages offered.
Duration of membership is dependent on the package chosen,
however, once membership activated (i.e. membership fee is settled),
said membership will commence for duration of membership i.e. Member
will (commence) receiving profiles. However, after settling membership
fee, if member requests to hold back on receiving profiles for any

commence once the grace period has expired. If a further grace period
is requested, this will be at the discretion of the Facilitator.
The Membership fee is payable before contact names/profiles
Membership fees must be paid in full. Instalments just
create more administration. Thus, we do offer a reduced fee (solely at

believe that you fall into this category then we will gladly offer (a
All information given is STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL. We never
divulge member's home addresses / work address / landline numbers.
Only certain information will be given out to fellow members.
Members are welcome to edit their own profiles, however, we
do reserve the right to re edit/shorten/amend profiles.
Should it become necessary, we do reserve the right to
"check" members credentials including (but not limited to) member's
church group ministers, but only in the most extreme cases.
Having said the latter ...
We are not responsible for investigating individuals and therefore
we make no representation as to their character.
We assume all applicants/members are (born-again) Christians
with a basic belief based on John 3:16 (For God so loved the world
that he gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall
not perish but have Eternal Life).
To avoid possible gossip and slander, members are requested
not to discuss (with other members) details of who they have met
previously, how many people they have met thus far or similar. If
questions of this nature are put to you simply change the subject. The
Bible is clear and speaks against gossip and slander which can bring
dissention into the Body of Christ. Lets make a difference.....
Because we are different!
Regret cheques not accepted. For security reasons, kindly do
not send cheque/money order or similar through the mail.
Upon joining, we provide (via email) profiles of select
members as close to member's specifications as possible and thereafter
members are kindly requested to contact us monthly for further
profiles (introductions). Thus you will be updated regularly with

on a regular basis requesting profiles and simultaneously providing

at any given time
Connecting Christians, its parent company, its

members' race / colour / ethnicity choice or preference. It is a
members constitutional right to chose whom so ever they wish and
whilst Connecting Christians, its parent company, its
leaders/facilitators, employees, agents and affiliates may or may not
agree with such a choice / preference - Connecting Christians, its
parent company, its leaders/facilitators, employees, agents and
affiliates will NOT be held responsible in any way should any member
or members request a particular race / colour / ethnicity of another
Please note that this is not a marriage bureau and therefore
we cannot be held responsible if members do not meet their "soul
mate"! To this end, anything more than friendship will be a bonus from
God! Furthermore, we will not be held responsible in the event of any
other member not connecting/communicating/ceases communication with
another member for whatever reason. Membership is continually on the
increase, and therefore we believe there is somebody for everyone.
PLEASE BE PATIENT!! In the (unlikely) event of a member not connecting
with any other member (including whose profile(s) they may have
received) during duration of their membership we will gladly extend
membership (at our discretion) FREE OF CHARGE.
Best form of communication is to e-mail me however, members
are welcome to call /SMS/WhatsApp. KINDLY NOTE: Hours (to contact) are
STRICTLY (unless urgent) MON-FRI 09h00-20h00; SAT 09h00-14h00.

As mature Christians we are all aware of the biblical
principals regarding relationships, therefore please do not embark on
anything that could harm the BODY OF CHRIST.
When contacting another member and a meeting is arranged
between two parties, if for some reason the appointment cannot be
kept, the other party must be notified accordingly and as soon as
possible, so as to prevent any inconvenience or embarrassment. MEMBERS
are personally responsible for making and cancelling appointments;
therefore we urge members to have contact numbers on hand.
In the interest of "responsible security" - members first
meeting should take place in public / neutral surroundings i.e.
Restaurant / coffee shop etc.
Personal details of members are exclusive and confidential
and will UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES provided to NON members (i.e. friends,
Should any member meet someone special through Connecting
Christians and request their membership to be placed "on
hold", BOTH parties must personally inform (via email) this
service/agency SOONEST - and if for any other reason members wish to
be placed "on hold" the same would apply. Including if members meet
someone outside of Connecting Christians or are away
on holiday/business for a lengthy period of time. Members may
re-instate their membership at any time during duration of membership
or are welcome to re-join (if their membership date has expired).
Kindly notify us accordingly (via email). Once you have signed up as a
member there are NO REFUNDS.
It is imperative that members inform Connecting Christians
soonest of their request to be placed on hold for any reason
especially if members meet someone through the service/agency or even
if its not anyone through Connecting Christians - to avoid any
embarrassment for the person (i.e. a member) who may have been given
another members profile by the Facilitators. Remember, for some people
(in particular some ladies even men who are shy!) it is difficult
enough to e-mail/make that all important call. Now imagine how that
person feels when they are told ”Sorry I have met someone!” Please
make our job easier by adhering to this simple, but all important
request. Please note: Should members request to re-instate their
membership, duration of membership will commence for the remaining
time i.e. date of joining (membership activated).
