What is Spiritualist Healing?

The Spiritualists. National Union defines it as being the use of forces and energies from the world of Spirit, channelled through the healer by the laying on of hands, (contact Healing) or near the body, or prayer, or thought from a distance (Absent Healing).

What is involved and what happens?

If you would like to try Spiritualist Healing, come along to the Church on a Monday evening before 7.30 or a Thurday afternoon before 2.00. All are made very welcome, you will be met by our receptionist who will ask you a few basic questions, name, address etc, you will then be shown to a seat while your turn for Healing comes around. The Healer will then escort you to a chair where the Healing will take place.

Firstly, all the Healing that is given is always in the presence of other Healers and patients, you are not required to remove any of your clothing, except perhaps an overcoat or glasses. The Healer will then explain to you what will happen and what you might or might not feel. You will then be asked if the Healer can place their hands on you, if you feel that you do not want to be touched, then, near to body Healing will be carried out. This means the Healers hands are normally two to three inches away from you. Healing is always carried out with the recipients welfare in mind and nothing embarrassing or uncomfortable will take place, in fact you can ask the Healer to stop at any time. On completion of the Healing you will be asked if you would like a drink of water and then you will be escorted back to your seat. Gentle music is played throughout the Healing Service, so you are welcome to come along and just sit in the meditative Atmosphere of our Church.

After the Healing Service tea, coffee and biscuits are served, this is a nice time to talk amongst friends and any questions that you may have can be asked and hopefully answered.

Our Healing Team.

We have two SNU Certificated Healers, eleven SNU Approved Healers and two SNU Trainee Healers working within our Church.

All our Healers are registered with the SNU Healing Committee

A little bit about our training program for our trainee Healers.

All the trainees have a minimum training period of 100 sessions of practical training, during which an education course must be completed with a pass mark of 70%. During the 100 weeks, all aspects of Spiritual Healing is taught, and again during this period the trainees must attend four review sessions, these are usually held in a central Church within our district. On completion of the trainee program and education course, the trainee will then be assessed on their ability and knowledge of Spiritual Healing at an upgrading assessment, and if successful, they will become a SNU approved Spiritual Healer.

This year one of our healers has been awarded the Ted Annable Shield for her outstanding work in completing her Healing education course work. Well done and thank you for allowing the award to be displayed in the church.
