Abbey Wood Crusaders Spiritualist Church

Your local church for spiritual enlightenment and healing

Our Church is open for all to attend without limitation on numbers of people in the congregation. . We have resumed our normal service although we are keeping the collection plate in the foyer as it has proved popular with our congregation and they have been so generous with their freewill donations.

We look forward to welcoming you into our church.

 Healing sessions and 'hands on' healing are available together with beds for those patients who prefer them. Healing is carried out on Tuesday evenings 7pm to 8.30pm and on Thursday mornings 10.30am to 12noon. 

We have also created a Healing Guestbook where you can nominate your relatives and/or friends for distant healing and we will also place their names in our Church Healing Book and send out healing to them during our Healing Silence on Sunday evenings.  

You can now contact us by e mail at ' or direct to our Secretary on 01322 409312.


Love, Light and Healing to you all. 

Church Committee.

Welcome to the website of Abbey Wood Crusaders Spiritualist Church.

Abbey Wood Crusaders Spiritualist Church is also known locally as Harvel Crescent as it is situated in the crescent and has been here since 1934. The origins of the church date back to the 1862 when it was a Coach House with stables. It was lived in up until 1933 and was then converted into a church which originally was very small in what is now the foyer area. The church extension that exists today was added in 1951.

When you come to the church you will be welcomed and whether it is for a Sunday Service or healing you will find a friendly atmosphere where you can relax and absorb the overwhelming positive energy. Many people come every week and say how they enjoy the friendly chats, tea & biscuits, and spiritual upliftment they receive from the service or the relief of their aches and pains from the healing received. (see Healing page)

The church is run by a Committee of Members who hold regular meetings to discuss forthcoming events, maintenance of the church and its grounds and ways of increasing the church membership which is currently 53. The Committee also authorise expenditure on equipment, repairs and set charges for special events.

The church had a new front entrance door, glazing and canopy a few years ago and the committee have agreed to redecorate the upstairs rooms and re-carpet the stairs.

Our President is Philip Hotchkin who is a healer, healer trainer and spiritual counsellor and has been with the church for twenty five years.

We have weekly Sunday Services (see details on Service page) and twice weekly healing services on a Tuesday evening from 7pm to 8.30pm and Thursday mornings 10.30 am to 12.00 pm. No appointment is necessary but if you are new to the church you will need to complete a registration form and we will need to complete a record card for your healing sessions.
