Toby and Victoria met on Christian Connection#5 – “We really see this as a symbol of hope and love” – Toby & Victoria, our Christian Connection story

“We had planned our wedding day for May 2020, invited over 100 guests to share our special day with us and we were so excited. But then COVID-19 hit. We spent a lot of time trying to convince ourselves that it wouldn’t impact on our wedding, but when lockdown was announced, we knew that was unrealistic. It was at this point we had a glimmer of hope, after seeing what our church could achieve tech-wise for a Sunday morning service we decided to pitch the idea of a ‘virtual wedding’.

What feeds their spirit and brings them joy?”

Lindsay and Steve who met on Christian Connection on their wedding day#2 – “I am so grateful to God” – Lindsay’s Christian Connection story

“Looking back, I am so grateful to God for that 18 months of working through issues around identity, value, rejection, pride… internet dating sends you through internal processes that you wouldn’t necessarily face! I found in myself pride when I was rejected yet again by someone who I deemed inferior! I found issues of rejection and was driven back to the arms of God to figure out my identity is totally in Jesus, and it is a confident and stable identity because of that. By the end of the 18 months, I was quite different.”

#1 – Dating & the coronavirus

“When things are uncertain, it can be unsettling and even lonely at times, so be kind to those that you interact with. People may be concerned about the rapidly changing news, their family members and friends, their work situation or their own health.
