Speed dating by candelight
Coventry Cathedral

There is nothing quite like speed dating in a real live Cathedral. Not that many people have had the chance, but for those who have, it's awesome. Candlelight, piano music, huge amounts of space and a real sense of wonder. Christian Connection were delighted to be able to return to Coventry Cathedral for the second year running in Valentine's week.

It was a great opportunity for many CC members who can't easily get to London to attend an event near the middle of the country. We had people coming from far and wide, some travelled nearly 150 miles! The staff at Coventry Cathedral, led by Sandra, did us proud, with wonderful hospitality and care. There were even a couple of flautists playing beautifully during the break.

We know of at least one special union as a result of last year's event - this year there were plenty of matches, so we will wait and hope!

Here is some of the feedback we received:

"Thanks very much for organising the event...I found it only slightly nerve racking, and quite good fun. So thank you very much."

"Thank you for organising the speed-dating event in Coventry Cathedral on Friday. The setting was much grander - more spacious - and appropriately Christian compared to my other experience in the hotel in Rugby (although that was fine - perfectly functional). In summary - keep up the good work"

"Thank you for arranging an enjoyable evening"
