About Christian Housing
Behold how good
and how pleasant it is
to dwell together
- Psalm 133:1
Since 2001, Christian Housing has been used to connect Christians who want to "dwell together in unity."
The users, such as yourself, are segmented in various ways.
One important factor is whether you are looking to relocate or if you are sharing your existing home.
Another is how much space you are willing to share, versus what rooms you would want to use exclusively.
"Dwelling together" may not go as far as sharing the same bathroom,
but it does mean that you'll be fellowshipping in some way,
to "encourage and build one another up" (1 Thessalonians 5:11).
How it works
Follow these simple steps to connect with a future flatmate.
Register for free.
Maybe you're an empty nester with a few bedrooms and an extra bathroom who is open to a small family sharing a home with you. Maybe you're the mobile one (or ones) with flexibility about where you live. Perhaps you'll even find someone else who is looking to move, who you connect with, and you feel comfortable supporting each other in a Christ-filled home atmosphere. This network may be just what you were searching for.
Post information about yourself. Give the other seekers as much of a background as possible. The website will immediately connect you with those in your area who seem to meet your qualifications. If you are in the stable grouping, rather than the mobile group, then you will also have the opportunity to list what resources are either exclusive to your future flatmate or shared with you.
Filter people out by seeing the last time they were on the website. Trim your list down. Request to see their contact information, and then use discretion about how and when to contact them. The first two (2) contact information queries are complimentary, but we ask for $20 beyond that or if you do connect, both to support the website and to serve as a deterrent against information harvesting. If you do not have $20, please let potential flatmates know your financial predicament before moving in.
Find a time to ask each other questions about your lifestyles, hobbies, history, preferred home environment, or anything else that would be appropriate.
Have the confidence to decline an invitation if you don't feel it would be a good fit.
Be respectful if the other party says no or wants to pray about it. When you connect with your roommates (or flatmates), set up the rules of the household, such as the ways of paying the bills on time and splitting the chores. If you have some hobbies in common, find a way to make use of those connections to fellowship. Dwell together in unity!
