Our world, and indeed our church, seem to be built around a 'couples culture'. From popular music to supermarket offers to 'family' events, being single can mean being the odd one out. Kate Wharton considers the challenges facing singles, addressing the issues of being complete without an 'other half', staying pure, being single again after divorce or bereavement, and dealing with pressures from both church and society. Kate reminds us that Jesus comes to bring 'life to the full', whatever our marital status. 'When we are sold out for God,' she says, 'then life will be the very best that it can be - whether married or single, with children or without - because we will be on our way to becoming who we were created to be.' Kate shows us how we can be single and whole.
Kate is Vicar of St. George's Church in Everton, Liverpool. Before ordination she worked as a Speech & Language Therapist and then as a Church Pastoral Assistant. She enjoys travelling, playing badminton, watching football, and going out with friends. She is a regular speaker at New Wine. She has been single for 33 years!
