March 16th 2021 Tuesday at 7.30pm
The Seven Principles of Spiritualism.
Rona will introduce us to the 7 Principles of Spiritualism, which are the foundation of the religious philosophy of Spiritualism within the Spiritualists’ National Union (SNU) and were received over a numbers of years towards the end of the 19th century.
Spiritualists are encouraged to challenge and question their own personal understanding of spiritual teachings and the 7 Principles give guidance and a framework which allows for some personal interpretation to enable each individual to establish and expand their philosophy as their own spiritual knowledge and development unfolds.
After a short presentation we will have an open discussion on the similarities between Spiritualism and other faiths and beliefs.
April 27th 2021 Tuesday 7.30pm
Our speaker for April will be Rev Karlene Kerr, Norwich Anglican Diocese Bishop’s Adviser for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic Affairs.
My passion is for justice, ensuring all BAME staff are on an equal footing, and that there is an intention to address racism as antithetical to the gospel, working together to ensure the church is a place where, whatever their role, class, race or ethnicity, all feel welcomed, valued and respected. My role is being a “critical friend” of the Bishops, giving honest feedback. I will be having open and honest discussions, listening without judgement and assumptions, acknowledging and celebrating diversity and differences as a gift from God.(https://www.dioceseofnorwich.org/app/uploads/2021/01/PCC-News-Spring-2021-vWeb.pdf)

June 15th 2021 Tuesday 7.30pm
Yusra and Laura have offered to explain their new roles at The Harbour Centre in Norwich, funded by the Ministry of Justice, with a view to identify and work with groups who fall under ‘protected characteristics’ who may be classed as ‘harder to reach’ groups. The aim is to raise the profile of the ISVA (Independent Sexual Violence Advisor) service, to ensure these groups feel they have equal access, feel safe and supported, and to understand any barriers these groups may face when requiring support if they have been a victim of sexual violence, whether they report to the police or not.
