The Church of Spiritual Awakening we currently have a steadily growing membership
and we like to think that our members feel a part of the Church's family. Church
membership is open to everyone over the age of 18. You do not have to become a
member to attend our Church of course. Many people come when they have a specific
need, or only like to come to Special Events. Some people attend regularly but
simply do not want to be part of a religion.
forms for membership of the Church can be obtained
this link, or by asking any Board member
when you come to Church . You are required to have
attended our Church regularly over a period of time
before the Church Board of Directors who meet monthly
will grant the application, this is because we like
to put a face to a name on a piece of paper and also
to show your commitment to the Church and Spiritualism
in general. Once your application has been approved,
you become a Member and will be informed by letter
or email of this fact and asked to pay a membership
fee - which is currently $40.00 per year.
immediate benefits of membership of the Church is a reduction on the entrance
fee for all events which are open to the general public. A Member can attend the
Church AGM or an EGM (Extraordinary General Meeting) and can vote on any matter
arising. Voting rights apply once Membership is gained.
added benefit to membership is the opportunity to sign up for the classes
and courses which our church offers for the development of spiritual
growth. You can sign for a class once you have gained Membership and shown regular
attendance as a Member for a period of time. The reason for this 'wait' is to
show commitment to Spiritualism as a belief system and to the Church and its work
to further the knowledge of the religion.
the greatest benefit of being a member of our church however is knowing that you
are part of a community, a family, who care about you and look upon you as a friend.
When people enter our Church they often comment that they feel they have "come
home". Being a member really means you have.
