A New Year Message from the Church President

Today is New Year's Day and our second of Tier 4. I expect that like me you were shocked to hear that we had leapt two tiers after being so diligent in our compliance with Tier 2 restrictions.    There we are!  As keeps being said, 'It is what it is' and we know that however harsh the restrictions are for many, they are for the greater good.

Churches are permitted to remain open and we are permitted to attend their services.  Bournemouth Spiritualist Church will therefore re-open as planned on 10th January with Janet Emilymae as our Guest Medium.    Our other loyal friends, Irene and David Jackson, Mark Stone and Laurence Cohen will complete our line-up for January.

Sadly we cannot continue at present with our Wednesday Healing sessions or our 1st and 3rd Saturday Private Sittings.

All our strict safety measures will remain firmly in place and  our events kept under constant review.

Our church, described as a Beacon of Light for Spiritualism, is dedicated, in great part, to the giving or sending of Spiritual Healing and as such we continue to send Love and Healing out across to world on a daily basis.   As in all the churches, we send healing to every member of the human family, our wonderful co-creation the animal kingdom, to the glorious world of Nature to to Mother Earth herself.    Please join us in sending Love, Light and Healing to the whole of Creation.

In this time of unprecedented suffering, how important it is to remember those who have suffered the most.   May we never forget those who lost loved ones in the most cruel of ways, not allowed to be at their bedside at they passed to the spirit world and for some, not even able to attend their funeral.  There are those whose relationships became fractured in the lockdown.   And with time, many peoples mental health began to suffer and continues to suffer.   Economic hardship is now the lot of many.  So many hopes and dreams have been dashed.   

 Looking back on 2020 is painful but let us look forward to 2021 with hope.  Thanks to our dedicated Scientists, the Corona Virus in all its forms will be brought under control in the coming year.   A World of 'New Normal' dawns for us.    We may be unable to forget and perhaps we should not attempt to do so but we can live in the hope and undimmed faith that all will be well again.

On behalf of the Church Committee, our Healing Team and myself, I wish everyone a blessed year ahead

Pat Machin, Church President
