A new study of churchgoers found many Christians feel isolated within their own communities, due to attitudes towards single people.
Four out of ten single worshippers reported feeling “inadequate or ignored”, with more than a third claiming they were treated differently to those who appeared happily married.
More than 40 per cent of those surveyed said their church “did not know what to do with them”.
Single women were often treated as a “threat to couples”, the research found, with other saying they felt more valued outside the church than within.
