Surrey page of South East Christian Singles


Surrey Christian singles is a local group of single Christians who meet to enjoy social activities and to make friendships. We Welcome anyone who is a Christian and those who are not Christians are very welcome as guests of members. 

The Surrey Christian singles Committee is run by a group of volunteers and therefore we do not charge a subscription fee but we sometimes may make a profit on an event to give money to charity and also to cover our administration costs such as web hosting fees.

The main age range for the people who attend events for the Surrey group are 40's, 50's and 60's.

To get further details of any of the events below or to find out more about the group, please send an E-mail or phone the organiser for the event. If you get no response from the organiser, please send an E-mail to surrey@sesinglechristians.org

We also recommend SCENE (formerly South Coast Events) if you live on the South coast. SCENE is a Christian social group started in 2001 by a small core of friends. This friendly atmosphere has stayed with us and made us welcoming group. We are neither a business nor a dating agency but an extended group of friends and acquaintances who get together for various activities. The group is run by Christians with a admin co-ordinator and various Event Organisers (all volunteers) who put together our 'Core Events' - see http://www.scenechristianevents.uk/ for more details.

Early May's a great time of the year when new-born lambs are numerous but crowds of visitors aren't, and the weather is often more mild then and has been very bright and sunny. Although the Lake District is also known for it's high rainfall, early May holiday is often sunny. We had one wet day but still did walks.  

This fun-packed group holiday is for 4 nights or can be 3 nights for you if preferred. 

Walks and non-walking activities led by volunteers. Designed for Christian singles and friends.

Amazing .......... One of the best shows I have ever seen.

I was a little unsure at first thinking I was going to see a children's show, but it captivated me from the opening scene.

Stunning colours, familiar music, wonderful performers and outstanding props. Definitely a must see!

When it comes to roast dinners, we really know our stuff. Every day our chefs lay on a feast of tender, hand-carved meats with all the trimmings – including towering Yorkshire puds, golden roasties with all those lovely little crunchy bits, and plenty of freshly prepared veg, all crowned with proper gravy. 

We serve four types of meat; gammon, succulent roast beef, soft turkey and juicy pork all cut and served from our carvery bar straight onto your plate. So it's no wonder we're Surrey's favourite carvery restaurant.

SATURDAY 14th DECEMBER 2019 - Christmas meal.

The Wheatsheaf, 40 Esher Green, Esher, Surrey, KT10 8AG. See https://wheatsheafesher.co.uk

The Christmas meal for 2019 will be held at The Wheatsheaf, 40 Esher Green, Esher, Surrey, KT10 8AG between 6 pm and 9 pm in a private room with capacity for 20 people and waitress service. This gives us the opportunity to mingle more and say grace. Please note we can only use the room until 9 pm as there is another booking after us. 

There will be the option to move into the main body of the pub after 9 pm for those who wish to stay longer. The Wheatsheaf, which is 200 years old, reopened in 2015 after a very lengthy top to bottom refurbishment! 

I have eaten at The Wheatsheaf a number of times and, with another member of the group, dined there recently. We were very impressed with the friendly reception, the quality of the food and the knowledge of the staff regarding allergies. We have chosen this venue for the reason that the food quality and service is excellent plus the pub has a very warm and friendly feel about it. 
There is a very large car park at the rear of the pub so no parking charges. 

There is easy accessibility to the A3/M25 as well as good public transport links, Esher station is about one mile away and the 465 Dorking to Kingston bus and the Kingston to Esher (via Surbiton) K3 bus (and vice versa in both instances) both stop about a 5 minute walk away. 

Please note: as the room capacity is limited to 20 people we will accept bookings with payment, on a first come first served basis by Friday 23rd November. I require commitment from a minimum of 14 people to secure the private room, otherwise our group will be accommodated in the main body of the restaurant, which is very pleasant but not as cosy as the private room facility.  

Therefore, please let us know without delay if you are definitely interested in joining us for the meal on Saturday 14th December by contacting For this event please contact Janet on 07810 810822 or e-mail janet@sesinglechristians.org or Samantha on samanthajgore@gmail.com or 07761 292 099. 

We will need your menu choices (state if for two or three courses) together with a cheque for the full correct amount by Friday 22nd November, 2019.
  
The pub management stipulates two weeks’ notice required, prior to the booked date of 14th December. Your cheque should be made payable to Pearmain Pubs Limited. Please contact us as above, for address to which to send the cheque. If, for any reason, you are unable to pay by cheque we can arrange a bank transfer so please let us know and we will give you the details.
