ABOUT Christian House Sitters

Christian House Sitters is a Worldwide ministry that started in order to provide holidays for Christians and sitters for owners who needed a reliable Christian to look after their home, pets and garden. House owners do not pay anything to have their property listed. House sitters are only charged £25 per year and in return for this some enjoy numerous holidays each year.

All fees from membership go to sponsor food for children at the Home of Peace Children’s Home in Kenya. This only supplies about a quarter of what is needed to feed the children so we urgently need sponsors.

All funds go via our Registered Charity TLC Children’s Trust Charity Number 1156786 website

N.B. Joining Christian House Sitters does NOT commit you to sponsoring a child or giving any support beyond your membership fee to these children. Although naturally if you want to support that would be greatly appreciated. We have some regular sponsors and other people who give an occasional gift. All are greatly appreciated.


We are Marilyn & Ray White. A fun loving Christian couple who have been in Christian work for over 30 years. Marilyn was born in England but moved to Zimbabwe as a baby. At the age of 16 she moved to South Africa. Ray was born in South Africa and grew up on a farm. We met in Johannesburg and got married in 1966.

Ray worked in  business for many years then he worked for YfC in South Africa then went on to Bible College and Pastored a church.

In 1982 we moved from South Africa to England.

In addition to his theological training Ray trained in Psychology and since moving to the UK he has lectured in Psychology, counselled for the NHS and opened a Christian Counselling Centre.

Marilyn is also a trained counsellor and manager.

In addition to the counselling we trained Christian counsellors both in our local area and by invitation in other areas of the UK. In total over 700 people completed the training courses. Many are serving the Lord by working in or through their local churches.

We also ran a secular Stress Management business.  We are now semi-retired and focus our time and attention on Christian House Sitters and Ray also served for 8 years as a member of our Church Leadership Team. He only stopped because we moved from Sussex to Somerset.

Ray also has an active preaching ministry and runs Christian seminars on subjects such as stress management for church groups.

He has written 3 books

The latest was published in Nov 2014 and is available from all branches of Amazon and as a Kindle download.

A few years ago we did a 2 month House Sit in France. Whilst there we felt the Lord leading us to set up a Christian House Sitting service. Since then we have done a number of other house sits.

We believe this site will benefit many Christians around the world.

  1. Woah the house sitting thing is SUCH a good idea! Is there a minimum age to house sit?

    • Thanks for the kind comment. I looked at your blog and it is great. As for a minimum age nothing official as long as you are an adult or accompanied by an adult. The adult would have to be the member and registered sitter. You can find allthe info on our website see especially the page House Sitting Explained or fee free to email me via the contact page on the web site.
