How do I become a Spiritualist? Expand Your first step might be to investigate the religion further to increase your insight and understanding. You can attend a service or group at a Spiritualist church near you. You'll be able to ask questions, and experience it for yourself. You could also take our “Introduction to Spiritualism” course, to find out about our practice and history. Once you have decided that you wish to be a Spiritualist, you will be taking on or changing to a new religion. If you decide to become a member of your local church, or an individual member of the SNU, you are declaring that your religion is now Spiritualism. Many Spiritualists choose to have a Naming Ceremony. This publicly affirms their acceptance of Spiritualism as their religion, and they are given a spiritual name inspired by the Spirit World. Whatever your route into Spiritualism we hope that, like so many people before you, your journey of discovery is a rewarding one.
