About Spiritualist Alliance

Our History.

Founded in 1959 by Reverends Beatrice Gaulton-Bishop, John Horning, and Doris Horning, the International Spiritualist Alliance of New Westminster, British Columbia, became a church under the Society Act on September 25th of that year, allowing it to solemnize marriages and operate as a federally registered charity issuing tax-deductible receipts.

Now known as the Spiritualist Alliance Society, the organization has undergone changes throughout the years. In 1979, a permanent location was established on 8th Street near Royal Avenue in New Westminster for Sunday services, Wednesday evening speakers, and medium workshops. From 2006 to 2020, services were held at 317 Columbia Street.

 

 During the pandemic, services moved to Zoom, but as of late 2022, in-person services have resumed at 3201 Mountain Highway in North Vancouver, specifically at Lynn Valley United Church. This new location is disability accessible, conveniently situated on major bus routes, and provides free underground parking. The Spiritualist Alliance Society will mark its 65thanniversary in 2024.

Established 1959

The Spiritualist Alliance has been recognized as a church since 1959, making it a longstanding institution with a 65-year history.
