Christian Flatshare links
Christian Flatshare recognises that it plays its part among and alongside many other Christian ministries, all of whom are helping to build the Kingdom and the body of Christ, in the ways that they are called to. As such we wish to grow this page to be a helpful and encouraging resource for our visitors, and to generously support those church ministries whose audience overlaps with Christian Flatshare's.
Those websites and organisations which are easiest for us to link to include those that are of interest nationally, operate on a not-for-profit basis and that are likely to be supported by the 469 churches and Christian organisations who have given their support to Christian Flatshare since January 2007.
