               Founders of the Church


This is a picture of our founders, Mr. & Mrs. Perkis. Mrs. Daisy Perkis began spiritualist meetings in her home in Ryde in 1922. These then moved in to a school room as numbers were averaging 21. On August 10th, 1923 an inaugural meeting was held in the Anglesea Hall.

Mr. Oliver Perkis became the first president and Mrs. Perkis the secretary – plus others forming a committee.

Their application for affiliation to the Spiritualists’ National Union was accepted and from Sunday September 16th, 1923 regular Sunday service were held.
