Dear Church Members & Visitors,
Latest News Update from Norwich Spiritualist Church Committee
There has been many questions as to when Norwich Spiritualist Church will re-open and the Church Committee want to make the situation clear for you all and re-iterate our official stance and the reasoning behind our decision to remain temporarily closed.
Due to the covid-19 pandemic, as a precaution to maintain the safety of our congregation and church helpers, healers and committee, the Church remains closed until further notice.
We will be in touch as soon as there is any visibility as to when the Church will reopen.
It is our full intention to reopen but we will not make any moves to do so until we can see an improvement to the pandemic situation in the UK.
The church committee is constantly reviewing the latest situation and our decision to open is based on many critical factors. The Church is a family congregation of all ages with many who are vulnerable and at high risk from catching the virus. Many of you remain in self-isolation. We will proceed with additional caution with this at the forefront of our minds.
We must protect our financial reserves. Whilst churches are permitted to open with lower congregation attendance, opening our church would not currently make economic sense. Opening costs relating to expenses such as utility costs would currently outweigh the predicted revenues we could take from service donations. We cannot and do not expect people to donate more to attend our church as the economic pressures of the pandemic restrict or abilities to spend and donate, therefore we feel that the decision to remain closed is the right thing to do.
The committee is taking a week by week approach to review the situation, if we were to make a knee jerk reaction we could risk our revenues as well as put lives at risk.
When we do re-open we will ensure there is a robust Covid-19 Secure system in place to protect everyone. Our initiatives and new ways of working will be communicated to everyone when the time is right. In the meantime, our thoughts are with those that have been infected and affected by this debilitating virus and we pray for their swift recovery and that a solution is discovered soon.
Keeping in Touch
We know only too well that this has been a very stressful time for you all and the safety and wellbeing is at the forefront of our decision making. We are doing all we can to ensure the Church and our dedicated congregation survives this pandemic.
The Church committee are still available to receive calls and answer your emails and letters so do not hesitate to contact us if you need support. We are very happy to answer questions from you and offer support, we urge you to contact us direct rather than make assumptions and judgement from people who assume and do not know all the facts.
Contact the people with the facts and who can answer your questions correctly via the Church Secretary Alison on email firstname.lastname@example.org, or Vice President Paul on 07402 045309.
Absent Spiritual Healing
Absent healing takes place every day by our dedicated team of church healers.
If someone, including animals, is unwell or needs help, please do not hesitate to contact us to ask for absent healing. Please contact us you would like to be included in our absent healing prayers. Absent healing is very effective and necessary during these difficult times.
Please send any healing requests for absent healing to Paul.
We thank you so much for all of your continued support for the Church and we feel comforted to know that you miss the church and community spirit as much as we do.
We look forward to seeing you all together again where we belong and welcoming you to the Church once it is safe to do so. In the meantime stay safe and well.
The Church Committee
Updated 17th March 2020
The Norwich Spiritualist Church Committee has today announced that The Church will close until further notice following the escalation of COVID-19 Coronavirus in the UK.
The Healing Sessions today are taking place from 11.30am- 2pm and from 6.00pm until 8pm and then the Church will close.
We also recognise that Spiritual healing must continue and therefore we will be offering absent healing. With this in mind, we will be happy to receive any names of individuals who you feel may benefit from Spiritual Healing.
Please send names via a private message to our Facebook Page and our healers will add you and them to their healing prayers.
We thank a multitude of volunteers, healers, committee and our congregations for all of the support to our Church and we look forward to welcoming you all back to enjoy the unity of our church once more.
We will keep you posted as to when the Church will re-open, please watch our Facebook page and our Website for further updates.
We hope and pray that you and your family and friends remain protected by illness
