Mediumship Modern Spiritualism has its roots firmly planted in the Hydesville rappings of 1848. It was through the mediumship of Katie and Margaretta Fox that communication with the Spirit world was established. The form of mediumship experienced at Hydesville is known as Physical mediumship because it was audible to the physical ears. There are many types of Physical mediumship, however the most prominent form of mediumship these days is known as mental mediumship. This is often called clairvoyance, but this is not stictly true. Clairvoyance is the ability to see Spirit but not all mediums 'see'. Some mediums 'sense' or 'feel' spirit and this is called Clairscentience, some mediums have the ability to 'hear' spirit and this is called Clairaudience. However, many mediums find that these abilities work in conjunction with one another. Some people are naturally mediumistic; as were the Fox sisters. For others they need to develop their abilities and this developmental process often takes the form of development circles. If you feel you have experiences that you can't explain or are looking to find out more about mediumship and psychic phenomena then an Awareness class is a good place to start and which may lead to a more in-depth opportunity to develop your potential under the leadership of a competent circle leader or medium.
In our Diary of events you will find a list of our services. On sundays at 6pm we have what we call our divine service, this includes elements of prayer, singing, a short reading, philosophy of a Spiritual nature as well as Spirit contact (mediumship), although no guarantees can be made and mediums cannot specify who they are able to make contact with. Our demonstrations of mediumship usually takes place on the first Monday of the month (second Monday if its a bank holiday) starting at 7 pm and usually last for about an hour and a half costing £5.00 unless it is a Special event which might cost a little more. The Open Circle / Awareness, provides the opportunity for those who are developing their mediumship the chance to have a practice and build their confidence before eventually leading perhaps to more public demonstrations on Church Rostrums. Our Open Circles are on the Mondays we don't have a demonstration of mediumship, they start at 7pm, costing £3.00, again you are more than welcome to come along. Click on Diary of Events/Notices/info for a list of mediums who will be attending the Church. Due to the nature of Public meetings, people usually only have a short message, a more in-depth message can often by achieved through what we call a Private Reading/sitting, although once again no guarantees can be made. If you are interested in finding out more we have leaflets on many Spiritual aspects and activities in the Church, please call in and pick up a leaflet. Our weekly activities are Sundays 6pm, Mondays Mediumship or Open Circle 7pm, Thursday 1.00pm - 3.00pm Spiritual Healing. Spiritual healing is another form of mediumship, more about healing if you click on the healing button. Fortnightly we have our Open Development Group for those who wish to develop thier mediumship further. We look forward to seeing you at our Church & Centre.
