Billericay Spiritualist Centre

Membership Application

Billericay Spiritualist Centre is affiliated to the Spiritualist National Union (SNU); as such it is governed by SNU bye-laws as well as national legislation in regards to such things as health and safety, data protection etc.

 

The process for becoming a full-member of Billericay Spiritualist Centre is partly defined by SNU bye-laws which compliment the Centre’s own requirements.

Application Process

Applicants should complete the attached application form and give it to a committee member together with the appropriate payment. At the next committee meeting the application will be reviewed and a decision made on whether the applicant should be accepted as an associate member.

Associate Membership

Associate membership lasts for at least 6 months; during this period the associate member will be entitled to the benefits bestowed upon full members, but will not have voting rights on any issue raised at the AGM or any other extraordinary general meeting convened.

Full Membership

On completion of 6 months associate membership, the committee will then decide whether to confer full membership upon the applicant. Applicants who are offered full membership will be invited to sign the Centre’s membership book.

Payment

Currently membership is renewed at the beginning of the year, prior to the AGM which is held on the last Tuesday of February each year. The cost is £10 per year and applies to both associate and full members. Individuals applying for membership after 30th June will be required to pay £5 to cover the remaining half year.

Benefits

Both associate and full members who have paid their membership fee will be entitled to pay only £2 for Tuesday services (non-members are asked to pay £3) with the exception of evenings when there are special events, such as workshops. Full paid associate and full members are also entitled to discounts on special and fund-raising events, as advertised.
