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
