July Newsletter 2017

Our mediums

Please join us in July to support the lovely mediums who are taking our services this month- Dawn Collinson, who has stepped in to replace Jon Gault, Pat Vitins, Gwen Smith coming to us whilst on holiday, Angie Freeland, Rob & Linda Pallett.  All these friends of the church offer a chance to learn more about Spiritualism, in addition to giving fine evidence of survival.

Darren Brittain’s Clairvoyance Evening Friday, 28th July, 7.30pm

Tickets (£8) are selling fast – don’t miss out on an opportunity to see an excellent medium who proved very popular last year.  Contact Fay or Enid for tickets.

Julia’s House

Our Treasurer says we raised £465 for our church charity in the last year thanks to 50% of all raffles, the sales from the Craft Stall and Jean’s delicious Christmas cakes. Jean and Sharon will be running another craft stall at Darren’s evening on 28th so please support them to make sure we can raise even more for Julia’s House this year.

Our AGM

Sincerest thanks went to all the Officers and Committee who had beavered away so hard to keep the church running in the past year, despite illness and work and family commitments. Special thanks were paid to Martina and Jade for their essential contribution in formatting the Newsletter and updating our Facebook page and website. So many organisations are experiencing difficulties in recruiting volunteers at the moment so it is wonderful we have been able to buck the trend. Thank you to everyone who attended the AGM. Our numbers were up on last year and led to the election of a new, enlarged and re-invigorated committee. This includes 2 nu-bees and 3 returning former committee members. Jean Levett remains our Bookings Secretary, which is a very arduous task, as she ensures we always have a medium despite last minute cancellations. Tricia Davis has volunteered to become Librarian. Do take a look at our Library if you would like to learn more about different aspects of Spiritualism.

New circle

Leeann Miller has offered to run a Beginner’s Development Circle at St. John Ambulance Hall. Starting in the autumn it would be run fortnightly from 7pm to 9pm.  The day of the week and other details will be determined by demand.  Please put your name and details on the sheet at church to register your interest. Please also be aware that this circle would require a regular commitment. There will be a modest charge to cover hire of the hall and other expenses.

Send out your love

We are living through a time of division and uncertainty, following a month of terrible happenings. All sensitive people feel the vibrations of the world around them- sensing the current pain, distrust and disharmony. But equally we can experience the warmth of love and the desire to help and support engendered in many by catastrophe. This is our opportunity to come together and send out our love and healing prayers. By concentrating on, and encouraging, positive, loving thoughts we can create a more positive, happy and peaceful world. Let’s create a rainbow of love and blessings.
