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.

Remembrance Sunday Service
As we come to the end of the Hall's 28th year, it has been a busy time with the usual programme for which we welcomed more than twenty Mediums to the Star of the East Hall each month.
On 29th October, the Hall was the venue for the Blessing of the marriage of Shelley and Andy. On 19th November the marriage took place of two members of our Committee, Janet MacDonell and Bill Bone, in a lovely ceremony at which Bill's nephew took the Service. The Registrar set up a table at the front of the Hall where Bill and Janet (now Bone) signed the Register. Afterwards friends and family, and there were many, enjoyed a superb meal at the Racing Greyhound. The Hall was full on both occasions. On a sad note, our President was asked to take the funeral service on 6th December as Celebrant for Douglas Twyman, a Medium and a member of our congregation at the Hall.
For some time now Friday nights have been the time for a Service facilitated by Vivianne and Mike Harbourne. This service varied from our Sunday Service in that hymns were replaced with popular songs with a spiritual meaning. However, due to many other commitments and pressures, Vivianne and Mike are unable to maintain this Friday Service and their last one was held on 13th December. But all is not lost. Anne Farmer, a Medium well know at the Star of the East, has taken over and her Services begin on 3rd January. Anne has already booked Mediums from around the country for several months ahead.
We welcome all to every event listed in our Diary of Events.
