The Gatherers

Social Group for Christian Singles in West Yorkshire and the surrounding area

Many of the group find that our local churches aim (socially) at families and children, and that singles are a group that tends to get overlooked. Events are organised by different members of the group covering varied interests including visits to interesting places, meals out, BBQs, parties and weekends away etc. Membership is informal and the group are always open to suggestions! We are open to Christians singles in their 30’s, 40’s, 50’s & 60’s. To get involved add yourself to our mailing list and then you will be given our programme. Exact details of times and meeting places, and contact numbers or emails will be given in the week before an event. Simply let the contact person know you are coming. It’s a great way to make new friends and have opportunities to go out to a variety of interesting things, rather than being stuck at home alone!
