Events

Our mediums

Join us this month to see Dawn Collinson return to take her second service with us. She is remembered for her lovely service in March 2016 before the birth of her twins. Dawn is followed by the welcome return of old friends Wendy Wharton, Irene and David Jackson, who will take our Easter service, then Justin and Louise Riggs and finally Toni Goswell.

Our Next Special Event

Jean Tanner’s Clairvoyance Tea on Saturday, 8th April at 2.00pm:  some tickets are still available (£8 and £7 (members)). Booking is a must to ensure there are enough cakes!

Membership 2017/18

Our new membership year starts from 1st April. Membership still costs just £5. It entitles you to priority booking at Specials, the use of our excellent library and a vote at the AGM, plus it helps support the church. Please see Shelley to pay your subscription. The Annual General Meeting will follow in May or June.

Your committee works tirelessly to keep the church running smoothly, to introduce new mediums and events and welcome newcomers. We try hard to foster a warm, loving and positive atmosphere to nurture and support everyone here. To that end if you have questions, queries, suggestions or criticisms then please tell us.

Portland Healers

Portland Healers opened in 2004 and has offered healing and comfort to very many over the years. Four of the devoted original healers remain as working members of the group. Sadly they have now decided that, because of work commitments and health concerns, their Wednesday evening sessions will cease after 26th April. However, they are still happy to offer home visits free of charge (fuel expenses welcome for distances). You can contact Phil & Cynthia Tarrant 01305 824873, Ann Godfrey 01305 820038, Norman Talbot 01305 821640.

Healing is available at Weymouth every Friday from 2pm till 3.30pm. There is no charge but a voluntary donation of £2 is welcomed towards our Hall rental charge of £25 for the afternoon. Please note we will be shut on Good Friday, 14th April.

Psychic News

We have been approached to sell copies of Psychic News again over a trial period, starting in April. We last offered it in 2012. It has now become a monthly edition at £2.80 from us, or £3.80 in W.H. Smiths. Please see Shelley, Sharon or Tricia to pay for your copy and give us your feedback.

Never too late

I loved the story of Ursula Shepherd who is learning to read at the age of 87. She left school at 15 unable to read or write, having been labelled as a dunce. She wants to be able to visit her local library to read romantic fiction and to be able to understand knitting patterns. What a lovely example of someone finally meeting a lifetime challenge. She wants to be a role model for all who struggle with literacy and show ‘it’s never too late’.
