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
Implications for Christians
For men: massive need for more effective evangelism, discipleship and ways of doing church
For women: up to 2 million → 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
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.
