[ OUR SERVICES ]

Regular Services at 6.30pm on Sundays

At Southport Spiritualist Church we hold regular services at 6.30pm on Sundays.

Sunday is our Divine Service where we receive teachings through Spirit inspired Philosophy delivered by the medium, sing the Healing Hymn and hold the Healing Minute which is a minute of silent contemplation where we send our individual healing thoughts and prayers to those who require them or indeed for ourselves.

During every service, prayers, hymns and absent healing are offered and a visiting medium will give evidence of the survival of Spirit by giving messages from relatives and friends who have passed to the world of Spirit to members of the congregation.

Names of loved ones and friends may be written in our Healing Book located in the Entrance Hall. These names will be read out at an appropriate time during each service.

Spiritual Healing is usually available by request after each service.

Following every service we are pleased to invite you to join us for refreshments in the School Room, where you will find ample opportunity to chat with old friends and new over home-made cakes and a refreshing hot drink.

We also hold Saturday clairvoyance services (Please note that they are not currently running at moment) along with other special services throughout the year such as the Remembrance service in November and a Carol service with prize raffle before we close for Christmas. Dates and details of these special services are announced in church and on our Facebook page.

What Can We Offer

One to One Readings
For those wishing to receive a private one-to-one reading, we have available our President/Minister who is an extremely popular Spiritualist Medium throughout the North West. These readings are Spiritual and evidential and therefore do not predict or fortune tell but instead they bring messages filled with love and comfort from those who have passed to the higher side of life proving that our loved ones continue to walk with us.. We hold regular Readers Days on which an appointment may be booked. However, these days sell out fast so it is worthwhile booking well in advance to avoid disappointment. Delivered with humour and compassion from a genuine Spiritualist Medium with a strong and pure link to Spirit, these personal sittings are charged at £15 for 30 minutes payable at time of booking and is non-refundable..
Specials
From March to September we hold a monthly Special Evening of Mediumship, where a guest medium is invited to the platform. Taking place on a Friday night and starting at 7.30pm for the very reasonable door charge of £6, these ever popular Special Evenings are very busy and you are recommended to arrive early to get a seat as once we reach capacity, as stipulated by the fire regulations, we must close our doors. From Flower Services to Photo Services there is something for everyone and we look forward to welcoming you. After each Special Evening service we open the doors to the School Room where you are invited to enjoy refreshments. The dates and details of these special services can be found on the downloadable and printable service schedule, or alternatively, like our FaceBook page and follow us for regular updates and up-to-the-minute information. 
Marriages
Please allow us to help you host the very joyous occasion of your marriage. Fully registered and licensed for marriages, including same-sex, our beautiful church can seat 100 with the option to add more seating. Working closely with the Minister/President, your input will ensure that the order of service is very personal to you making your day extra special. For any enquiries please contact the President. Contact details can be found on this site or alternatively call into the church.
Welfare
Southport Spiritualist Church are registered with Sefton Council Outreach Community Services and take an active role in providing support within the church and wider community. There are many reasons why you may wish to receive a visit from one of our Welfare Officers, for instance you may be hospitalized or house-bound, you may be recuperating or convalescing, feel isolated or lonely. Whatever the reason, our Officers are happy to provide a warm smile, listening ear and friendly conversation as well as more practical assistance. If you feel you would benefit from this service please contact the President with your enquiries. Please see the Contacts page of this website for details.
Funerals

During this distressing time, a funeral can impart a great degree of comfort to those grieving. Working closely with the Minister/President your input will ensure that the service is very personal to your loved one in Spirit. Alternatively, it is perfectly acceptable to allow us to provide an order of service for you, as we understand how painful organising a funeral can be. On this occasion we will strive to provide an uplifting, dignified and respectful service for your loved one. Within Spiritualism a funeral is a celebration of the person and their life on Earth as well as recognising and rejoicing in their passing to the next phase of their Spiritual life. Our beautiful church can accommodate 100 with the option to add more seating allowing plenty of room for family and friends.
Following the funeral, or indeed as a stand alone service, a Committal Service at either the grave-side or the crematorium ia also often chosen.  Please contact the President with any enquiries.  Details are on the Contacts Page.

After a period of time, many people like to arrange for a Memorial Service in remembrance of loved ones who have passed to the higher side of life. This is a beautiful way for family and friends to join together remembering and celebrating and once again you have the option to either work closely with the Minister/President ensuring the order of service is very personal, or indeed allow us to provide an order of service for you. As before, please contact the President with any enquiries.

It is a popular tradition within our church for members of the congregation to donate fresh flowers in a loved one's memory, to be displayed at the front of the platform. An entry is made into the Book of Remembrance, which is on permanent display at the front of the church, and a short announcement is read out during the service. If you wish to take advantage of this opportunity please speak to the Senior Vice President whose contact details are listed on the Contacts Page of this site.

Naming Ceremony
A Naming Ceremony is a wonderfully uplifting, emotional and deeply personal service where an individual declares their commitment to Spirit and to the Spiritualist religion and in turn is accepted into the Spiritual family, receiving their Spiritual name direct from Spirit. This service should always be conducted by a medium as it is through communication with Spirit that the Spiritual name is received. Our Minister/President is a working Spiritualist medium of over 28 years experience who has a pure and genuine link to Spirit and he will be pleased to ensure your Naming Ceremony is one of love, light and joy. For all enquiries please find the contact details for the President on the Contacts page of this site.
[ seven principles ]

Cornerstone of the Spiritualist Religion

These seven principles are the cornerstone of the Spiritualist religion.  These are not strict rules to be lived by rather they are there for guidance, a compass for your Spiritual journey.

The Fatherhood Of God

By the study of Nature - that is, by trying to understand the Laws of Cause & Effect which govern all that is happening around us - we recognise that there is a creative force in the universe. This force, or energy, not only created the whole universe, but also life itself in its many forms and is continuing to create today. The effects of this eternal creation can be seen around us and this leads us to the evidence that 'God' - 'The Creative Force' - manifests directly, or indirectly, in all things. We know this power as God and as we are part of the Life created by God, we acknowledge God as our Father.

The Brotherhood of Man

Because we all come from the same universal life source we are, in effect, one large family, small individual offshoot from the whole. 

This means that all mankind is part of a brotherhood. A brotherhood is a community for mutual support and comfort. We are all members of the same divine family. We need to share our joys as well as our burdens; we need to understand the needs of other individuals in order to assist them as part of our service to each other. As we learn to give so must we also learn to receive thereby achieving the necessary balance for our life. We must look not only to the material necessities of our fellow creatures but also to their spiritual needs and help those in need to become strong and worthy of their relationship in the Family of God. 

Communion of Spirits and the Ministry of Angels (This is the key Principle to our Religion)

All religions believe in life after death but only Spiritualism shows that it is true by demonstrating that communication with departed spirits can and does take place. Spiritualist Churches provide one of the venues where communication, through mediumship, is possible and many loved relatives and friends take advantage of this opportunity to continue to take an interest in our welfare. There are also spirit people/teachers who are dedicated to the welfare and service of mankind. Some (e.g. Silver Birch) bring inspiration and teachings whilst others work within the healing ministry.

For further information please contacts page. 

 £4.50 per person per class is extremely modest for the level of tuition you will receive and the guidance available to you.

Continuous Existence of the Human Soul

It is scientifically proven that matter (being part of the creative force, or energy) cannot be destroyed; it merely changes its form. Spirit, as part of the Creative Force is, therefore, indestructible. On the death of the physical body, the spirit continues as an integral part of a world, which interpenetrates our world but in a different dimension. This world is referred to as the Spirit World. In spirit life we have a spirit body, which until we progress far enough, is a replica of our earthly body. We are the same individuals in every way with the same personalities and characteristics and we change only by progression, or otherwise, as a result of our own efforts. Our personal responsibilities do not stop at death.

Personal Responsibility

This principle is the one which places responsibility for wrongful thoughts and deeds where it belongs - with the individual. It is the acceptance of responsibility for every aspect of our lives and the use to which we place our lives depends entirely upon ourselves. It is not possible for any other person, or outside influence, to interfere with our spiritual development, unless we are willing to allow this. No one can put right the wrongdoing except the offender. As we are given freedom of choice (freewill) so also are we given the ability to recognise what is right from what is wrong. We are totally, as well as personally, responsible.

Compensation and Retribution hereafter for all Good a Evil Deeds done on Earth

As with all the other Principles, the natural laws apply and this one echoes the law of Cause and Effect (as you sow, so shall you reap). One cannot be cruel and vindictive towards others and expect love and popularity in return. It must be understood that the compensatory or retributive effects of this law operate now - on earth - they do not wait until we begin to live in the Spirit World.

Eternal Progress open to Every Human Soul

In every heart there exists the desire for progress and to every human spirit belongs the power to progress in wisdom and love. 

All who desire to tread the path that leads to perfection are able to pursue it. The rate of progress is directly proportional to the desire for mental and spiritual understanding. If we do our best in earth life to follow our inward prompting or intuitions; we shall find progress very easy, on earth as in spirit; if not, every step in advancement will follow a struggle against imperfections, which we ourselves will have worked into our natures. Within the Family of God, with all the advantages that our realisation of that state can give us, we are all given the opportunity to be responsible for our own eternal progress.

Awareness & Development Class and Workshops

Featuring teachings from Spirit, the history of Spiritualism, practical exercises and meditations

Our Awareness & Development class runs on a Tuesday evening from 7.30pm until approx 9.15pm and is facilitated by the church President, who is a very knowledgable Spiritualist as well as a respected medium of many years experience, assisted by an Officer of the church who is a developing medium and Spiritualist.

Featuring teachings from Spirit, the history of Spiritualism, practical exercises and meditations, demand for places is high on this very popular course. We do however have a waiting list and you are welcome to add your name. 

The class membership consists of dedicated and committed like-minded individuals who enjoy a bond of camaraderie and deep trust and who support each other delighting in each others achievements. We welcome the opportunity to share your journey and blend with you and your loved ones in Spirit.£4.50 per person per class is extremely modest for the level of tuition you will receive and the guidance available to you.

Workshops covering a variety of Spiritual subjects are held regularly throughout the year and once again demand is high for a place on these comprehensive and very informative days. Great value at £12 per person, a non-refundable deposit of £5 is required to reserve your seat. Once again, for further information please contact the President via the Contacts page on this site.

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT

 As our Members and loyal congregation are aware, Our Building is more than 126 years old, and we are creating a Building fund. Over the last few years, we have had extensive remedial work completed, and we are in the process of completing outstanding work. We have decided to create a building fund separate from church funds to help fund the works. Our President, Andy, will continue to do days of readings and other spiritual procedures, and the funds raised will go directly into our building fund. If anybody wishes to donate, please see a Member of the committee. We thank everyone who supports our church, which gives so much and is vital to our community and spiritualism.
