Our Latest Testimonial

“I joined Heavenly Partners the Irish Base of Friends First in Jan 2021 I found them Warm, Informative, and Patient re my Questions. It is much better to speak to a Friendly Voice re any issues, and they respond to all calls & emails asap. Yes there are charges for various services but all these are Optional if suits you. I also understood this was an Introduction Service not Online Dating and that to get Best Results u have to make the effort to contact some of the Profiles received Brian rang me first end of Feb and we chatted a few times before we met in Dun Laoghaire mid March. Katharine Grey says dont go only by the Profile, as they are often misleading and you could miss a Wonderful person. Brian’s Profile made him seem very Serious, Work orientated and Dry. He described himself as Erudite !!!! But I agreed to meet him and enjoyed his company. He was great Fun, and a lovely man. Katharine also says Friendship before Relationship is best. I hadnt expected Brian and myself to become serious as I lived in West Ireland and he was in Dublin. But he persisted, travelled to Sligo for a Day Trip and also stayed in a Castlebar Hotel a week later, so we could meet over a few days. I used to think Chemistry was Important but now realise this is a Physical attraction and often fades in a few months, unless deep feelings occur. Initially I saw Brian as a friend whose company I enjoyed, but gradually a deep Soul Connection has developed and we are now making Plans for our future, including looking at houses, Amenities, and the Church we will attend etc Brian has just retired and has decided to relocate to Co Mayo, and we are very happy together. We both truly believe that GOD, with the help of Friends First has brought us together, and we are eternally grateful to all the lovely staff in Friends First GOD Bless them.”

Off line


We have discovered in today’s age, that people are craving the ‘good old fashioned ways’. This is why our membership and introduction service is provided completely off line. By doing this we can offer a truly unique, individual and personal way to introduce single Christians to each other.



We will give you our commitment that our members are not the ‘here today, gone tomorrow’ type. Our memberships are designed for genuine people of faith (Catholics and other Christians) who are looking for new friends and the right partner.

Expert support

Expert support

We offer education, support, coaching and the tools for success. They call it the ‘Bananarama Syndrome’, “It ain’t what you do, it’s the way that you do it, and that’s what gets results”. We are here to make sure you are doing the right things and the right way to help you get results!

An introduction to Heavenly

I’m Katharine, the founder of friends1st and it’s Irish sister…. Heavenly Partners. I’ve recorded a short introductory film about us and our Christian dating service so please click the icon on my picture to the left to listen to it.

I started this business in 1999 because I had many so single Christian friends, and I knew many single people at my church who were finding it difficult to meet other single Christians. I knew it wasn’t just a question of connecting people (although this is key) but of providing a trusted, personal, hands on service where Christians could get the right support and assistance that would make a difference to their lives.

Since those early days we’ve gone from strength to strength, remaining as an off – line, very personal, supportive, service with thousands of Christians meeting each other  – making new friends and finding a loving relationship. Our core values of providing a good old fashioned introduction service that isn’t faceless and powered by the internet continues to stand us and our members in good stead.
