We are so privileged to have a wonderful trance medium on platform this Sunday. Sue Boyle is visiting from Upper Hutt and will be demonstrating her beautiful trance mediumship.
She will also be doing a workshop at 10am on Sunday morning in the St John Ambulance Rms.

The second part of her workshop will be working in trance where you will have the opportunity to ask questions of her guide. Cost $20 for Centre members, $25 nonmembers. Pay at the door.

We look forward to seeing you at either the workshop or our evening meeting (or both).
