[NOTE: There is a new site launching soon just for Kiwi Christian singles.]
There are many different options for Christian dating in New Zealand. Top Christian dating sites include Christian Mingle, ChristianCafe.com NZ, Elite Singles and cMatch. Each of these sites is different to each other in some way, so we have provided Christian Dating site reviews. This will help you find the website that is right for you.
ChristianMingle helps members find a special someone of the Christian faith, offering a wide range of features like chat rooms, message boards, photo personals, a photo gallery, and anonymous private mailboxes. The interface is clean and easy to navigate, making the experience of finding love online as easy as possible.
The community was created specifically for Christian singles looking to find like-minded people for friendship, romance, or marriage, and faith influences almost every aspect of the site. To join, new members fill out basic profile information like body type, height, education, ethnicity, occupation, and marital status.
Questions about religion also form part of the basic profile – members respond to queries about the church they were born into, how often they currently attend services, and what denomination they belong to now.
Christian Café NZ
ChristianCafe.com is one of the leading sites for Christian dating. Christian Cafe was founded in 1999 and Christian owned and operated, a fact that sets it apart from the other major players in the Christian dating niche.
The most unique features of ChristianCafe.com are the forum and prayers. The forum is home to discussions about general interest topics like music, travel, and current events, as well as a wide range of dating-specific discussions and conversations about Christianity.
The prayers page allows members to post prayers when they are in need of support and show their support for other members by clicking an icon to indicate they have prayed for them.
Elite Singles has a unique matching process and this extends to Christian dating as well; the site originally started off as a Christian dating site. However, these days’ members of other religions greatly outnumber Christians so it can be difficult to find matches on this site.
Compared to other sites Elite Singles is relatively expensive as well. Another issue is that users cannot browse profiles manually. Instead, matches are prepared for you automatically based on how you fill your profile in and answer the initial questionnaire.
cMatch is a Christian site for those looking for friendship or romance within their faith. To join, users choose a username, and enter an email address. In the following pages, you need to answer a few questions about your lifestyle, education, habits, and commitment to your religious faith. In the final section, you’ll be asked to describe your relationship with Jesus.
Profiles are approved by a moderator before they go live on the site, so there is a a wait before you can log in. cMatch is a strongly religious community, so you will need to be sure of your faith before you sign up. Unfortunately, the cMatch community is fairly small, consisting of a few thousand active users. Logged in members can use the site’s internal email system, or the chat tool for those who’re online. Safety advice and dating tips are also provided.
