One of the key differences between Spiritualism and other religions is found within our third principle.  

The Communion of Spirits and the Ministry of Angels.

Communion with divine energy is a natural and essential part of existence. Communication between Spirit itself and its creations is an inbuilt ability. Spiritualists use this ability for communication directly, or via a medium, between those in the spirit world and ourselves. This is not supernatural; it is a normal activity. The main purpose of communication with the spirit world is to provide the evidence which supports our philosophy. The Ministry of Angels brings enhanced wisdom to enlighten the individual, society and the world in which we live. This includes those who are dedicated to the welfare and service of mankind bringing inspiration guidance and healing.

How does Horwich NSC approach the third principle? 

 

Horwich NSC works to get a variety of speakers at our services and events, and among other duties, they may help prove that the third principle is very much real.  For 2017, Horwich would like to thank the following speakers who have worked at our home, bringing that evidence to those in attendance.  In addition, we have hosted an 'open mike' night, inviting a variety of speakers to work at once, and of course, our successful Fledglings group at Horwich have also supported us.

 Mediums currently not serving Horwich

If you are a medium who would like to serve Horwich, we are always keen to talk.  We have a proud history of supporting new mediums onto the platform, and in recent years have held fledgling nights inviting other churches to bring their fledgling mediums to work with our congregation.  Whether starting out as a fledgling or an established medium who may not have served us, or lost links in recent times, please to email us your details and a little of your history, and our booking secretary will be in touch to discuss possible future bookings.  Please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
