Firstly, please browse through the FAQ's to make sure your problem is not addressed here. If it is not, please email email@example.com with the details of your problem. If your screen is displaying an error message, please copy and paste the message into the email to enable us to fix the problem.
Can I use Christians Online to make new friends, even though I am not single?
Christians Online is for everyone. Although many of the Christian Friends members are single, there are also quite a few who are not and simply looking to make some Christian friends. We suggest that when you do your profile, you make mention in your description that you are happily married (or in a relationship) and looking to find some new Christian friends, regardless of gender. This way people searching know what you are looking for ie: not a relationship but a friendship.
How do I contact other members?
Go to www.christiansonline.com.au and log in using your Log In and Password. Go to the profile of the person you wish to contact and click the 'Contact Me' button. Write your message and hit send - it's that easy! This is exactly the same as writing an email to a friend, where you can write what you want.
Please Note: To communicate with other members you must be registered and have an active paid profile on our site.
How do I know if the person I have contacted has received my message?
When you send a message, 99% of the time your message will be sent successfully. However, if your message does not get through successfully, you will receive a message from Christians Online notifying you that your message was undeliverable. Messages that are not processed successfully are usually due to an incorrect email address entered when the profile you are contacting has been setup. We suggest you try once more, and if it doesn't go through again, try contacting someone else.
How do I know if I have a message from someone?
You will receive a message from Christians Online to your email address. The message will state that you have a message waiting and there will be a button to click on to retrieve your message. Alternatively you can view your inbox/outbox by simply logging into your Christians Online account with your username and password.
Please Note: Messages are sent via our secure and anonymous email exchange.
