Letter of praise for our church

Dear Alan and Pat

After sitting in the church on Wednesday watching Vicky Knight give the most inspiring address and amazing demonstration of mediumship I just wanted to write and thank you all at Croydon Spiritualist Church for all that you do.

As I sat on Wednesday it made me reflect on how my life has changed, unfolded and opened so many doors that were waiting to open when I first came along 3 years ago.
I’ve always loved a bigger spiritual picture, always knowing that there is more than we could ever know or understand.

I’ve seen many a medium, tried many an ‘alternative therapy’ and always looked for a sign or two!!

Little did I know when I met Pat’s daughter several years ago in different circumstances and she said ‘pop along to Croydon  Spiritualist Church when you can because my mum and step dad are very involved there,  how much these few words would change my life!
So 3 years ago with lots of issues going on for me I found myself sitting in the church. The love, the peace, some amazing proof that our loved ones are with us and addresses that gave me light bulb moments, I knew I was being given more helping signs from spirit.

Truthfully these moments helped me more than I could ever explain.

So with many a door opening, I absolutely love being a trainee healer and being part of a team who help those wanting healing. I sit in a small developmental circle that is full of fun, love, kindness and support.
I’m in awe of all that spirit has opened for me when the time was right in my life so I continue to trust, be part of the amazing healing team and circle and can’t thank you all enough for how you continue to help me and everyone who walks through the door of the  Church.

It is truly a remarkable place.

I hope tomorrow’s celebrations (church birthday party) go well and sorry that I can’t join you all. However, I shall raise a glass on my deckchair to thank you all, spirit and the bigger picture that supports and guides us all.

Much love Erica xx

First blog post

The power of Spiritual healing. I have had permission from the family involved to share their wonderful story with our Facebook members which was sent as a request for healing to the SNU Almoner’s page. Requests are sent to all people who have signed up to it, worldwide, and absent healing is sent from all those people. Please feel free to sign up to it by emailing Minister Marian Bishop at marianbishop@talktalk.net


I received an email from Sally Barnes who has shared with me some wonderful news.
A little while ago healing and prayers were asked for Conner Bagley who had fractured his spine and the prognosis was not good at all. He was going to America to the Football academy with a future in football.
He was put into a body cast for 8 weeks … but was told that it was just simply to ” just see what happens” his chances were about zilch but that an operation and pins was the expected outcome.
Said Sally, having asked for healing through the Almoners page, her development group, and other people sending out for him the cast was removed last week.
The Outcome !!!!!!!!!
The doctors had to double check his x rays as they said they could not believe they had the correct ones … that the ones that they were seeing were like those of someone who had never had a fracture in the first place !!!
They had expected the possibility of seeing calcium growth for the bonding/ mending of the bones …but the x ray didn’t even show that .
It is as though the fracture was never there in the first place.
Obviously Conner and the family are over the moon with happiness, and now he is in the throes of making plans to go to America.
Both Conner and his Mum wish to thank everyone who has asked for healing thoughts to go out to Conner and who added him to their prayers,
Friends …what can we say to such a marvellous outcome but ” Thank you to God ” for all the help that was given by whoever asked for healing … we know that we are only instruments but how Powerful are prayers and healing in times of need.
but always remember friends ” that your thoughts and prayers are always heard ”
We all know that this has been a classic case of ” Spirit in Action”
Thank you Sally for sharing this with us all …
