MSC is a spiritualist church affiliated to the spiritualists’ National Union. As such we are a registered charity (Number 1162328) and in order to retain our charitable status we have to abide by the SNU’s current Rules for Churches and Bye-laws which prescribe the principles of democracy and political correctness for their churches in minute detail and great length.

Another way of putting it would be to say that democracy figures in the running of the church through Membership and a Committee, while political correctness is observed in the welcome that can be expected by persons of any race or religion who enter the church.

The welcome you may expect is not imposed by Rules, however, it is the natural consequence of philosophies of life based on the Seven Principles given to Emma Hardinge Britten from Spirit by Robert Owen.
