We who serve at the Star of the East have been privileged to help, albeit in some small way, the many people who come to the 'Hall' in search of some deeper meaning to life.
The need for a spiritual centre was identified by our President over thirty years ago, and through the efforts of volunteers under Karin's guidance the 'Hall' was opened for the first Sunday Service on the 28th April 1991. With the support of our congregation, an extension was built in 2010 with new facilities added.
Those who come to the 'Hall' often include those whose spiritual needs are just awakening and come to seek advice on how to discover what is awaiting them beyond this earthly life. Often, they find the key to the door, in the messages they hear from a loved one in Spirit through the words of a medium. Or a person with whom they converse or by meditation, as well as in talks and discussion groups, development circles and coffee mornings.
In 2010, through the efforts of volunteers under Karin's guidance, and the support of our congregation over many years, sufficient funds were raised to enable the completion of an extension. A healing room, a cloak lobby, storeroom and a disabled access toilet, were added to the Hall.
People who find their spiritual needs awakening, often find guidance and insight from a person with whome they talk, or through a demonstration, a workshop or lecture. Or they may find reassurance in words they hear through a visititing medium from a loved one in spirit.
Private readings are also available, which may offer comfort by showing evidence of life in the spirit world. We who serve at the Star have been privileged to help, albeit in some small way, the many people who come in search of some deeper meaning to life.

STAR NOTES - January 2020
The New Year has ushered in some changes for the Star of the East. On Wednesday 15th January a general meeting was held. Our President took the chair and announced the setting up of a new and broader management structure consisting of Committee members and non-Committee members filling key appointments. She thanked everyone for their work and support over many years and welcomed the new members to the team.
The President also thanked two members of our congregatation who had recently made a generous donation or left a legacy to Church funds. The contribuitions were given to promote the faith of Spiritualism in our community. The new apointments and the funds will enable important and much needed improvements to the fabric of the Star of the East Hall. Our new Publicity Officer is looking at ways of advertising the Star of the East to a wider community and possible additions to our list of events.
From the Diary of Events you will see that we will continue with our full programme and which includes Church Services, Coffee Mornings, Afternoon and Evenings of Clairvoyance, Healing and Reflexology.
Most Events, including the Sunday Family Service, incorporate a period of clairvoyance. As usual, the past month has featured Mediums who have been coming to the Star of the East for many years and new faces - some who have travelled considerable distances to be with us. Each Medium works in a unique way but all are in touch with the world of Spirit and bring messages of love and comfort to individuals in the Hall.
Our Sunday Service consistes of traditional Hymns, a reading, a healing prayer and an Address by the visiting Clairvoyant as well as about 35 minutes of clairvoyance. Music is provided by Chris, our organist, who has supported us over many years and succeeded his father who was in his time the Church Organist. After the Service there is tea, cake and biscuits as well as an opportunity for a session of Spiritual Healing. Like our Friday Service and most other events, both Service and healing are free, but donations for the Church are most welcome.
