Who we are

Engage is a national network of Christian organisations working to promote positive relationships in the UK church and make Christian marriage possible.


Did you know?

2 men: 3 women ratio in the church, and mostly 1:2 for single people 

(UK Church Statistic 2021;  Tearfund 2007;   Evangelical Alliance 2012;   YouGov 2014Church Census England 2005; Church Census Scotland 2016)


Implications for Christians

For men: massive need for more effective evangelism, discipleship and ways of doing church 

For women: up to 2 million → if they want to marry, marriage to a Christian man is not possible 

                                                    → stay single and childless, or marry a non-Christian?

For children: spiritual fatherlessness → only 16% of our grandchildren will have a Christian father and mother if current trends continue


Our Vision

To make singleness or marriage a genuine choice for all Christian women and men, through a church which is gender-balanced and teaches about healthy Christian singleness, dating and marriage.



Engage organisations are working together to 'join the dots' between different ministry fields, identify the issues affecting the church, and facilitate solutions. Our website has great resources for Christian leaders and others: use them to help change things for you, your family, friends, church and organisation. See the Resources tab for more information.
