In With The New

It’s been an incredibly busy 12 months for our church and members, and this new year looks to be equally as busy.

The New Church

Sadly there have been further delays caused by negotiations regarding the lease and conditions of sale.

Our trustees are charged with obtaining the best possible long term deal for the church, and setting up the new building for the benefit of Spiritualism and the local community for the next 999 years. The value of the assets being transferred means that we have to cover every possible angle to satisfy the church Governing Document and the Charity Commission. It really can’t be rushed.

 

We can’t share any commercially sensitive details, but with the help of our outstanding solicitor, Sarah, we are very close to securing a very favourable lease for the church and community centre, and a stunning new building. We hope to complete all the legal aspects by the end of January, with the building work starting soon after. It’s been a long and often tortuous journey.

The Beginners Circle

The church ran its first Beginners Circle in October 2023. Over eight weeks, a group of eight complete beginners, attended weekly lessons (with homework)  on Mediumship and Healing, given by our team of experienced tutors. 

The course was a fantastic success, with all eight students making considerable progress, and setting themselves firmly on the spiritual path, and ready for the next stage in their development.

We’d like to thank our tutors Maria, Miranda, Diana, Sharon and Maggie for making the course such a success, and we look forward to holding our next intake in March 2024. Enquiries: lschurchmedia5@gmail.com

The Development Circle

A new circle for 2024, building on the work of the Beginners Circle. In fact six members of our first Beginners Circle have already signed up. We are limiting the circle to just ten learners, who will be taught on a weekly basis by one of our experienced tutors.

 

We are committed to the training of new Mediums and Healers, and we are offering this training pretty much at cost price, at just £5 per month for church members, and £12 per month for non members.

 

The course would be perfect for any learner who can meditate, open and close their chakras with protection, and open a basic connection to spirit.


We have three places still available for this small dedicated circle held every Thursday, enquiries: lschurchmedia5@gmail.com

Back Out in The Community

We held a fantastic evening of Mediumship in November at the Middle Park Community Centre, attended by over 60 people.. This was followed by a Christmas Divine Service at the same venue in December. We hope to organise more public events during 2024, which we’ll post up on our social media once they are confirmed.

Our Sunday Divine Service

We’ve really enjoyed hosting these every Sunday on the Zoom platform, attracting between 40-50 worshippers every week.

It’s wonderful that there are so many dedicated and talented Mediums, who are willing to give up their time to serve spirit. Our Divine Service returns on the 7th January 2024 at 6.30pm.

Going Forward In 2024

Can we say a huge thank you to Miranda, who stepped in as acting President for much of the year, covering for our President, Dotty, who has been unwell, but is thankfully now recovering.

The church has another busy year coming up, and without the dedication of our committee and trustees, we’d be in a much weaker position than the one we find ourselves in.  Once the building work has started, the church will be submitting a voluntary application to become a registered charity, with the Charity Commission.

Onwards and upwards !!
