At long last we reopened the Wakering Spiritual Centre on the 5th August!!
Admission has remained the same at £4, plus an additional £1 (a strip) if you fancy your chances with the weekly raffle.
Doors open at 7pm to ensure a prompt start at 8pm, refreshments will be available during this period and at the interval.
Although things are slowly getting back to the way things were pre-covid, we are still taking measures to keep everyone safe i.e. chairs will continue to be distanced and hand sanitiser will be available on the main table as you come in. If you would like to take extra measures yourself and would feel more comfortable in wearing a face mask, please feel free to do so.
We respectfully ask to remain considerate of other people and how they choose to stay safe.
During the following weeks we will only be practising 'spiritual healing'. Reiki will be reintroduced once we believe it is safer to do so.
If you haven't been before, it is a very friendly centre with a lovely friendly atmosphere, where you will be greeted by Stuart & Rita - it would be lovely to meet you!
We have different 'Mediums' working each week in a very relaxed and often playful environment.
Each week we are overwhelmed by the amount of evidence our guest mediums provide, proving there is life after death and that our loved ones are always with us and guiding us on our life path.
We also have a healing book on the main table as you walk in.
If you or anyone you know would like to receive absent healing, please add the names in the book and we will send out healing every day.
If you have any questions that you would like answered, please feel free to call Stuart & Rita on the numbers provided above.
The centre first opened on the 12th May 1999 at the Shoebury Hotel, our very first medium was Bill Rich (who still continues to serve for us today).
The main reason for opening the centre was to raise money for local charities, while raising awareness of spiritualism to the surrounding areas of Southend-on-Sea. At that time there were no other centres within the vicinity.
We were at the Shoebury Hotel for 5 years, sadly this came to a close when the hotel encountered a devastating fire.
We relocated to Sandpiper Close (still within Shoeburyness) where our numbers continued to grow each week. After 10 years of serving the local community, we needed to acquire a larger hall.
So, on the 14th August 2014 we relocated to the Great Wakering Memorial Hall and we changed our name to the 'Wakering Spiritualist Centre'.
In the 22 years since we opened we have raised just under £100,000.00 and distributed this to a vast number of charities i.e. MacMillan Nurses, Southend Hospital, RNLI, Guide Dogs for the Blind, Southend Social Services, etc, etc.
In addition to monetary support we have also donated a significant number of Easter Eggs and Christmas presents to those that are less fortunate.
The ongoing support we strive to achieve is accountable by the regular features we promote throughout the year i.e. 1-2-1 table readings, admission, raffle fees and all profits which are accumulated each week.
Everyone that works and helps at the centre do so voluntarily and we would like to thank them all for their hard work.
Our ongoing success is a testament to the wonderful and lovely people that join us each week. Without you all, none of this would be possible.
Thank you all so very much, God bless
Stuart & Rita xx
