Welcome to The Light
Our church service is held every Sunday at 6:00 for 6:15. In addition to prayers, singing a few well chosen hymns with Millie playing the organ, a reading and address by the attending medium, and sending out our healing thoughts to those on the church list, a big part of the service is given over to a demonstration of mediumship.
This is where the medium makes contact with the spiritual world to pass on messages to members of the congregation, messages that give us evidence that life is eternal and that our loved ones that have passed are still watching over us and sending us their love.
Do also stay for tea, coffee and biscuits if you would like to get to know us and have a chat, or to share any thoughts or questions you may have.
We wish you love, caring, fellowship and healing.

Our Next Special Event- change of date
Ooops – sorry- please take note of our new date. Jean Tanner will now take the Clairvoyance Tea on Saturday, 8th April at 2.00pm because I was an early April Fool as the Hall had been pre-booked for a party. With our new date booking has now opened with tickets at £8 and £7 (members). Don’t miss out on a chance to enjoy a great afternoon of clairvoyance from a first class medium and delicious cakes from our own ‘Mary Berry’.
Spring truly lifts the spirit with its promise of new life and
new beginnings. I have been thrilled to see the daffodils
and crocus burst into bloom in the front garden; whilst from my kitchen window there is the joy of seeing a cloud of pink blossom on a neighbour’s flowering cherry. Feel I can come out of partial hibernation as the light and colour help lift our mood. Hope more of you will venture out and support the church to ensure we stay open.
Just want to say a big thank you to Tricia Davis’s husband for his carpentry skills in repairing the organ and righting the wonky cross. Thank you to all of you who step in to help out by moving chairs and collecting the hymn books- you are appreciated.
Those of you who are regulars will know how wide ranging our medium’s choice of reading can be. While certain medium’s choice may be predictable others will keep us guessing. Those choices can range from The Aquarian Gospel to the poetry of Helen Steiner Rice, from Internet borrowings to inspired or channelled information brought through as prose or poetry. Often the medium will say he/she is given no peace until the words in their ear are committed to paper.
I have learnt that we each journey on a unique pathway and the challenges and choices which face us at each junction and crossroad are our personal responsibility. We must not judge others but only seek our own solutions. Lessons which we ignore will present themselves again and again until resolved. People and situations are given us to help our own and others’ development and learning. By allowing ourselves time and space to go into the quiet to contact the spirit within we can access the answers we seek.

This month we have the pleasure of welcoming back three well known and loved mediums ( Linda Bassett, Lawrence Savill and Hazel McLister-Brewer) and Dawn Collinson who gave us such a lovely service last March before the birth of her twin boys.
Our Next Special Event
This is no April Fool – Jean Tanner is going to take another of our popular afternoons- a Clairvoyance Tea on Saturday, 1st April at 2.00pm. This is a great chance to enjoy clairvoyance from a first class medium and delicious cakes in friendly company. Tickets will go on sale mid- February.
Regarding possible future Saturday workshops the committee will be discussing the results of the recent questionnaire shortly. Please take give us your feedback on the questionnaires still available at the Hall. If you are interested but have yet to complete one there is still time-so please do it.
Our Candle Table
Just a reminder of the purpose of the candle table beside the altar. You are invited to light a candle for friends and family in memory of them and shared times you hold dear.
Thousands of candles can be lightened from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases by being shared.
I said I wasn’t going to make any resolutions this year but take a day at a time with small targets. Have just managed to achieve a get-together with two old colleagues, suggested in Christmas cards for years. After several failed resolutions we finally made it and it was so enjoyable. Now it’s time to tackle the next challenge.
There is a wonderful mythical law of nature that the three things we crave most in life, happiness, freedom and peace of mind are always attained by giving them to someone else.

Join us this month as we welcome back popular mediums Sharon Brown (returning after a break), Rob and Linda Pallett , Pat Vitins and Sam Handsford, who gave us such a lovely first service last January.
The committee has discussed the possibility of holding some workshops at the Hall on Saturday afternoons. Various suggestions have been made but we are open to other ideas and need to know the level of interest for them to go ahead. Please take give us your feedback on the questionnaire available at the Hall.
2016 ended on a high note with a very happy ‘Spirit of Christmas’ service. Thanks go to all who participated to make it such a lovely, uplifting evening, especially to Anna Maria Walton, for her fine clairvoyance, and Nigel for his address. With great courage Jim Moore opened the service with ’In the beginning was the Word ‘, echoing the words spoken so often by his son David. It has been wonderful having Millie Frost back to play the organ for us and a joy to see her looking a little stronger each week. Thank you, Millie, for playing for the Carol Service and being the essential lynchpin attempting to keep us on time and tune.
Special thank s go to Enid for all her hard work in setting up and running the big Christmas Raffle and to all of you who contributed prizes. The proceeds raised will be split 50/50 between Julia’s House and church funds.
The Charity will also benefit from the money raised by Jean’s delicious Christmas cakes, the beautiful selection of craft items made by Jean and Sharon and from the Church Christmas Card donations in lieu of individual cards. Thank you all for your generosity.
52 Lives aims to change the life of someone each week and spread kindness. Its basic belief is that people are good and good people working together can achieve amazing things. Unexpected kindness is a powerful action that can change someone’s whole outlook on life. Each week 52Lives posts the story of a person in need of help on its website and social media and hundreds of supporters respond. Take a look at their website 52-lives.org and check out some of the previous requests and the responses. The charity is also taking The Kindness Project into schools across UK. It aims to spread kindness and empower children in practical ways by showing how one small person can make a big difference.
Once again we come into a new year of change and challenge. My wish is as always that it will be a happy and fulfilling time for our members, families and friends; that we will be aware of needs of others, that we will allow ourselves to grow without the limitations of can’t or the bearing of grudges, and that we treasure simple pleasures and our many blessings.
